Temporary Protected Status Work Authorization Extension

Provided beneficiaries re-registered for TPS, they do not need to file any application to receive the TPS extension. This extension also extends the beneficiaries’ Employment Authorization Documents (EAD). Beneficiaries can provide their extended EAD documents to their employers to continue their authorized employment.


If you did not re-register in time, you can apply for Temporary Protected Status but must provide “good cause” as to why you didn’t re-register. If you need to re-register, it would be in your best interest to contact an immigration attorney who can ensure your paperwork is filed correctly in order for you to stay in the U.S. under Temporary Protected Status.


If the U.S. District Courts win the stated cases, the TPS termination will take effect for Nicaragua and Sudan no earlier than 120 days from the mandate and for El Salvador no earlier than 365 days from the mandate.
