The periods of re-registration for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under the designations of El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan is extending from 60 days to 18 months, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced on Friday.
The department said that eligible citizens from those six countries may continue to register at any time within the 18 months of the designation’s duration.
The designation under Haiti had to end on August, 2024. It will run through that date. The only change is that the beneficiaries from this country whose period of registration was closed on January 26, 2023, may keep applying until that date, the site uscis.com explained.
