DHS Extends TPS Re-Registration for 6 Countries
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has made an important announcement that affects Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
beneficiaries in six designated countries: El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan. This update extends the TPS re-registration periods from the previous 60 days to a more generous 18 months, providing beneficiaries with additional time to secure their TPS benefits.
New Deadlines for TPS Re-Registration
The re-registration deadlines for the following countries have been extended:
- El Salvador: Extended until March 9, 2025.
- Haiti: Extended until August 3, 2024.
- Honduras: Extended until July 5, 2025.
- Nepal: Extended until June 24, 2025.
- Nicaragua: Extended until July 5, 2025.
- Sudan: Extended until April 19, 2025.
This extension enables TPS beneficiaries to submit their necessary forms, such as Form I-821 (Application for Temporary Protected Status)
and Form I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization)
, at any time within the 18-month window for these designated countries.
Special Re-Registration Details
Additionally, there are specific details regarding re-registration deadlines for each country:
- El Salvador: Beneficiaries can continue to re-register even after the September 10, 2023, expiration date mentioned in the June 21, 2023, Federal Register notice.
- Haiti: Beneficiaries can continue to re-register even after the March 27, 2023, expiration date noted in the January 26, 2023, Federal Register notice.

It’s crucial to note that while this announcement extends the re-registration period for existing beneficiaries, it does not alter the previously announced TPS designations for these six countries or change the eligibility requirements. Instead, it provides beneficiaries with a more extended timeframe to ensure they can re-register for their TPS benefits.
