The Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has announced the 18-month extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Sudan. The additional 18 months will make the TPS effective from November 3, 2014 until May 2, 2016.
Our Los Angeles immigration attorneys want to inform current Sudanese beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS status that you must re-register during the 60-day period that runs from September 2, 2014 through November 3, 2014. Our U.S. immigration lawyers encourage current TPS beneficiaries from Sudan to re-register as soon as possible.
This extension of TPS for Sudan is based on ongoing armed conflict and the continuation of extraordinary and temporary conditions that led to the country’s most recent TPS designation in 2013.
The 18-month extension also allows TPS re-registrants to apply for a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Eligible Sudan TPS beneficiaries who re-register during the 60-day period and request a new EAD will receive one with an expiration date of May 2, 2016. USCIS is also automatically extending current Sudan TPS EADs with a November 2, 2014 expiration date for an additional 6 months, with a new expiration date of May 2, 2015.
