ALERT - DHS Announces Re-Registration Process for Venezuela TPS

Posted by Emilie Ronald | Sep 08, 2022 | 0 Comments

Department of Homeland Security announced the re-registration process for current Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders from Venezuela on September 7, 2022. The announcement was made in the Federal Register. It allows beneficiaries of Venezuela's TPS program to re-register to extend their TPS for an additional 18 months and renew their EADs. The Federal Register notice also automatically extends the validity of EADs previously issued under the Venezuela's TPS designation through September 9, 2023.

In order to be eligible under the Venezuela TPS designation, applicants must:

  • Be a national of Venezuela or a person without nationality who last habitually resided in Venezuela
  • File during the open initial registration or re-registration period or meet the requirements for late initial filing during any extension of Venezuela's TPS designation
  • Have been continuously physically present in the United States since March 9, 2021
  • Have been continuously residing in the United States since March 8, 2021

TPS beneficiaries wishing to re-register must do so in the 60-day re-registration window from September 8, 2022-November 7, 2022.

USCIS will continue processing TPS and EAD applications filed during the initial registration that have not yet been approved. Applicants with pending applications do not need to file again during the re-registration period.
