TPS extension for Hondurans, Nicaraguans and Haitians

On November 4, 2011, USCIS announced the extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Honduran and Nicaraguan TPS beneficiaries. TPS allows beneficiaries to remain lawfully in the United States, for a designated period of time, with an Employment Authorization Document.  Status for Hondurans and Nicaraguans is extended for 18 months, from its current expiration date of January 5, 2012 through July 5, 2013.  The 60 day re-registration period began November 4, 2011 and ends January 5, 2012.

The redesignation of Haitian TPS was announced by USCIS in the Federal Register on May 19, 2011. Under the redesignation, certain individuals who currently do not have TPS, or a TPS application pending, may apply for TPS through November 15, 2011. We want to alert you to resources on TPS available through the Immigration Advocates Network (IAN), our partners, and other advocates.
