Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson has extended temporary protected status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Nepal for an additional 18 months.
Key dates and deadlines:
Background: Johnson originally designated Nepal for TPS due to a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that occurred April 25, 2015 and has determined that the country continues to suffer in the aftermath as most of the damage to homes, schools and hospitals has not been repaired.
BAL Analysis: Individuals eligible to re-register are encouraged to do so as early as possible during the 60-day period. Employers should be aware of the automatic extension of EADs for existing holders of Nepal TPS for Form I-9 purposes.
