DHS Extends Temporary Protected Status Re-Registration Periods for El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Honduras for 18 Months

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending the periods to re-register for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under the designations of El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Honduras for 18 months. According to DHS, the 18-month re-registration period under the designation of: (1) El Salvador now runs through March 9, 2025; (2) Haiti now runs through August 3, 2024; (3) Nicaragua now runs through July 5, 2025; and (4) Honduras now runs through July 5, 2025.

TPS is a temporary immigration status granted to eligible nationals of a country under the Immigration and Nationality Act or to eligible persons without nationality who last habitually resided in the designated country. During the TPS designation period, TPS beneficiaries are eligible to remain in the United States and may obtain work authorization so long as they continue to meet the TPS requirements.

This re-registration extension will allow TPS beneficiaries to submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status and Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, at any time during the 18-month extensions of the TPS designations of these four countries.
