The Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has
extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Nepal. The extension is for an additional 18 months, effective December 25,
2016, through June 24, 2018.
Current TPS Nepal Beneficiaries
If you are currently a TPS Nepal beneficiary who wants to extend your TPS,
you must re-register anytime during the 60-day re-registration period,
from October 26, 2016, through December 27, 2016. Though you have 60 days
to complete re-registration, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
(USCIS) strongly recommends that you do this as soon as possible to avoid
any potential complications later on.
In addition, for those under the initial designation of TPS for Nepal,
your Employment Authorization Document (EAD) will automatically be extended
for an additional 6 months, expiring June 24, 2017. For those that are
TPS beneficiaries whose EAD was based off their TPS status expiring December
24, 2016, your EAD will automatically be covered by the new extension.
