Temporary Protected Status (TPS) Extended for Somalis

Our Los Angeles based U.S. immigration attorney’s office has just received an update from Acting Secretary of Homeland Security, Ran Beers, that Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Somalia has been extended for an additional 18 months, effective March 18, 2014 through September 17, 2015.

JCS Immigration and Visa Law Office has learned that current Somali beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS status must re-register during a 60-day period that runs from November 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013. USCIS and JCS Immigration and Visa are encouraging beneficiaries to re-register as soon as possible once the 60-day period begins. USCIS will not accept applications it received before November 1, 2013.

The extension also allows TPS re-registrants to apply for a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Eligible Somali TPS beneficiaries who re-register during the registration period will receive a new EAD that expires on September 17, 2015.
