Registration Period Opens for Syrians for Temporary Protected Status

March 19, 2021

The Department of Homeland Security today published a Federal Register notice (FRN) extending and re-designating Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, effective March 31, 2021, through Sept. 30, 2022.

The re-designation of Syria for TPS allows additional eligible individuals who have been continuously residing in the United States since March 19, 2021, and continuously physically present in the U.S. since March 31, 2021, to file initial applications to obtain TPS, if they are otherwise eligible.

The extension allows approximately 6,700 current beneficiaries to re-register and retain TPS through Sept. 30, 2022, so long as they otherwise continue to meet the TPS eligibility requirements. The re-designation of Syria allows an estimated 1,800 additional individuals who have been continuously residing in the United States since March 19, 2021, and continuously physically present in the United States since March 31, 2021, to file initial applications to obtain TPS, if they are otherwise eligible.

Current beneficiaries under Syria’s TPS designation will be eligible to re-register for an extension of their status and have employment authorization through Sept. 30, 2022. The 60-day re-registration period runs from March 19, 2021, through May 18, 2021.
