TPS for South Sudan Extended for 18 Months

TPS for South Sudan Extended for 18 Months

The Department of Homeland Security has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of South Sudan (and eligible individuals without nationality who last habitually resided in South Sudan) through May 2, 2019.

Due to ongoing country conditions, continuing armed conflict, extraordinary and temporary conditions that prompted the 2016 TPS redesignation- acting Secretary Duke determined that an 18-month extension of South Sudan for TPS is necessary.


TPS Reregistration

Current beneficiaries of South Sudan’s TPS designation seeking to extend their TPS status must re-register. Deadline for reregistration will be announced later this week.


Employment Authorization Extended (EAD)

Those who already possess EADs may receive an automatic extension of their expiring document for up to 180 days from the date their current EAD expires.

If a beneficiary’s EAD request is approved, they will receive a new EAD with an expiration date of May 2, 2019.

TPS beneficiaries are strongly encouraged to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as possible to avoid lapses in documentation of employment authorization.
