DHS ANNOUNCES REGISTRATION PROCESS FOR TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS FOR ETHIOPIA


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted a Federal Register notice on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Ethiopia, which provided information about how to register for TPS under Ethiopia’s designation. In October, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas announced the 18-month designation of Ethiopia for TPS. The registration process began on December 12, 2022. All individuals who want to request TPS under the designation of Ethiopia must file a Form I-821 application. Applications must be submitted during the 18-month initial registration period that runs from Dec. 12, 2022, through June 12, 2024. Ethiopia TPS applicants are eligible to file Form I-821 online. To be eligible for TPS under Ethiopia’s designation, individuals must demonstrate their continuous residence in the United States since October 20, 2022, and continuous physical presence in the United States since Dec. 12, 2022. Individuals arriving in the United States after Oct. 20, 2022, are not eligible for TPS under this designation and may be subject to removal if they have no other authorization to be in the United States. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) estimates that about 26,700 individuals may be eligible for TPS under Ethiopia’s designation.
