DHS Extends TPS Re-registration Periods for El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan to 18 Months

The Department of Homeland Security has extended the re-registration time frame for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from 60 days to 18 months for El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan. During the 18-month extension period, the TPS beneficiaries will be able to submit Form I-821 (Application for Temporary Protected Status) and Form I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization). To note, this DHS announcement “extends the period when existing beneficiaries may re-register for their benefits” and does not change eligibility requirements or previously announced extensions for these countries.

“The 18-month re-registration period under the designation of:

  • El Salvador now runs through March 9, 2025;
  • Haiti now runs through Aug. 3, 2024;
  • Honduras now runs through July 5, 2025;
  • Nepal now runs through June 24, 2025;
  • Nicaragua now runs through July 5, 2025; and
  • Sudan now runs through April 19, 2025.”

A Federal Registration notice will soon be published.
