Re-Registration Process for Current Venezuela Temporary Protected Status Beneficiaries
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that Venezuelans currently under Temporary Protected Status (TPS) can re-register to retain TPS and renew their Employment Authorization Documents (EAD).
Re-registration applies only to Beneficiaries of the initial designation of Venezuela for TPS who were already residing in the United States since March 8, 2021. Please note that Venezuelans who arrived in the United States after March 8, 2021, are not eligible for TPS.
Beneficiaries must re-register during the 60-day re-registration period from September 8, 2022 to November 7, 2022. DHS also announced that due to lengthy delays, current EADs expiring on September 9, 2022 will be automatically extended through September 9, 2023.
Individuals with pending applications do not need to file their applications again. If USCIS approves their applications, USICS will grant their TPS through March 10, 2024 and issue a new EAD valid through March 10, 2024.
REMINDER: Venezuelans currently eligible for TPS should file their application before September 9, 2022, if they have not applied yet.
If you are interested in applying for TPS or re-registering for TPS, get started by consulting with an experienced immigration attorney.
