The Department of Homeland Security announced, through the Federal Register, the automatic extension of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and the validity of the documentation related to it for the citizens of El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan.
The extension is until December 31, 2022 and benefits those who are already enrolled in the program, that is, those who have had TPS previously, but are not accepting new enrollments.
Beneficiaries have an automatic extension of their work permit until December 31, 2022, which must be accepted by employers just by showing them the notification in the Federal Register. The beneficiaries will also be able to renew their driver's license until the aforementioned date
Those who wish to obtain a work permit that shows a validity date until December 31, 2022, must renew it by submitting the required application and paying the corresponding fee.
TPS is awarded to eligible individuals from designated countries - countries affected by armed conflict or natural disasters - who were present in the United States when that country's designation occurred, to live and work in the United States for the time authorized by the Department of Homeland Security.
The countries that have recently been designated to receive this temporary protected status are Venezuela, Haiti, Burma, Syria, Somalia and Yemen..
