DHS RESCINDS PRIOR TERMINATION OF TPS DESIGNATIONS FOR EL SALVADOR, HONDURAS, NEPAL & NICARAGUA


Effective June 9, 2023, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) rescinded the prior Administration’s terminations of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations for El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, and Nicaragua. They will also extend TPS for these countries for 18 months. DHS previously extended the validity of TPS-related documentation for current beneficiaries who are nationals of El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, and Nicaragua through June 30, 2024. Federal Register notices will explain the eligibility criteria, timelines, and procedures necessary for current beneficiaries to re-register for TPS and renew their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs). Once notices are published, existing TPS beneficiaries under the four designations can then re-register to continue their TPS throughout the 18-month extension. Details about each country’s extension and the re-registration period are set forth below and will be further explained in forthcoming Federal Register Notices. El Salvador DHS is extending the designation of El Salvador for TPS for 18 months, from Sept. 10, 2023, through March 9, 2025. The new extension allows approximately 239,000 current TPS beneficiaries to re-register to retain TPS through March 9, 2025, if they otherwise continue to meet the eligibility requirements for TPS. Existing TPS beneficiaries who wish to extend their status through March 9, 2025, must re-register during the 60-day re-registration period from July 12, 2023, through Sept. 10, 2023. Honduras DHS is extending the designation of Honduras for TPS for 18 months, from Jan. 6, 2024, through July 5, 2025.
