DHS Continues Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Beneficiaries from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Nepal, Haiti, and Sudan

November 16, 2022

On November 10, 2022, the Department of Homeland Security announced the continuation until June 30, 2024 of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and work authorization for beneficiaries from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Nepal, Haiti, and Sudan.

TPS is a humanitarian benefit available to citizens of designated countries allowing them to remain in the United States and hold employment authorization due to the timely crises posed in the designated country.

The automatic extension of TPS-related documentation for beneficiaries includes specified Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) through June 30, 2024.  TPS beneficiaries who want a new EAD with the expiration date of June 30, 2024 must file Form I-765 Application for Employment Authorization.

The TPS extension and continued work authorization ensures USCIS’s continued compliance with federal district court orders in the Ramos et al. v. Nielsen and Bhattarai et al. v. Nielsen et al. lawsuits.

Importantly, this litigation compliance does not extend TPS status for those who were newly granted TPS under the 2021 TPS designation of Haiti or the 2022 TPS designation of Sudan.  Those individuals retain their TPS in accordance with their USCIS approval notices.

Please contact the attorney at LHSCD working on your case if you are a national of El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Nepal, Haiti, or Sudan and have any questions about Temporary Protected Status.  Or, to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys, please proceed to our Consultation Request Form .
