Re-designation and 18 Month Extension for Syrian TPS Holders
The Secretary of Homeland Security has re-designated Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). This means that the existing TPS designation for Syria now covers April 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016. Eligible nationals of Syria may register or re-register for TPS and remain temporarily living and working in the United States.
How to Apply
Current Syrian beneficiaries of TPS seeking extension of status must re-register during the 60 day period starting on January 5, 2015 and ending on March 6, 2015.
Syrian nationals applying for the first time may apply starting April 1, 2015. To be eligible, you need to have resided in the United States since January 5, 2015 and have had continuous physical presence in the United States since April 1, 2015.
