USCIS Extends Employment Authorization Documents for TPS Beneficiaries

Martha Arias - New USCIS Announcement

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has recently announced an extension of the validity of certain Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) issued to beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan. This extension is valid through March 9, 2025.

For TPS beneficiaries, this extension means that their current EADs will remain valid until the specified date. USCIS will be sending a Form I-797, Notice of Action, to notify those affected by this extension.

It is crucial for current TPS beneficiaries under these designations to be aware of the following:

  1. Re-registration Requirement: If you have not yet re-registered for TPS under the most recent extension for your country, you must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, during the current re-registration period to maintain your TPS benefits.
  2. Re-registration Deadlines: The re-registration periods for each country are as follows:
    • El Salvador: Through March 9, 2025
    • Honduras: Through July 5, 2025
    • Nepal: Through June 24, 2025
    • Nicaragua: Through July 5, 2025
    • Sudan: Through April 19, 2025

    While the re-registration periods end on different dates, all EADs are extended through the same date: March 9, 2025.

  3. Instructions to Re-register: To re-register for TPS and renew your EAD, you should refer to the most recent Federal Register notice that extends TPS for your country (or extends and redesignates your country for TPS).

This extension is a significant relief for many TPS beneficiaries, providing them with continued work authorization and stability. It is essential to act promptly and ensure that all necessary paperwork is submitted within the specified deadlines to avoid any interruptions in your TPS benefits.
