Temporary Protected Status Re-Registration Period for El-Salvador Has Begun for Extended Work Authorization Through September 9, 2019

If you currently hold Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under El Salvador’s designation and want to maintain your status and work authorization until September 9, 2019, you must  re-register between Jan. 18, 2018 and March 19, 2018.

Re-registration procedures, including how to renew employment authorization documents (EAD), can be found at uscis.gov/tps.

“USCIS will issue new EADs with a Sept. 9, 2019, expiration date to eligible Salvadoran TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, however, USCIS recognizes that not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on March 9, 2018. Accordingly, USCIS has automatically extended the validity of EADs issued and currently valid under the TPS designation of El Salvador for 180 days, through Sept. 5, 2018. “

El Salvador’s TPS designation is expected to end on September 9, 2019.
