This week, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services made an announcement regarding Temporary Protected Status for Nepal. For individuals that wish to maintain their protected status through June 24, 2019, they must re-register for this protection between May 22, 2018, and July 23, 2018.
In order to re-register for Temporary Protected Status, an individual is required to submit Form 1-821, which is the Application for Temporary Protected Status. In addition, it is important that anyone who has TPS for Nepal should be sure to submit an Application for Employment Authorization if they wish to continue working lawfully.
Last month, the Department of Homeland Security made an announcement regarding the termination of Temporary Protected Status for Nepal because the conditions in Nepal no longer meet the criteria for TPS. Though the termination of TPS was initially supposed to end on June 24, 2018, it was extended until June 24, 2019, in an effort to make sure the transition process is smoother.
Other countries that currently designated for TPS include El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
