Temporary Protected Status Extended for Nepal


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.
