What is TPS?

TPS is a humanitarian U.S. immigration status for nationals who cannot safely return to their home countries due to specific conditions. TPS provides a work permit, protection from deportation, and travel authorization but requires periodic renewals.

Re-registration for TPS

TPS beneficiaries must re-register by submitting Form I-821 during their country’s re-registration period to maintain their benefits:

  • El Salvador
    Until March 9, 2025
  • Honduras
    Until July 5, 2025
  • Nepal
    Until June 25, 2025
  • Nicaragua
