U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) opened the re-registration period Tuesday for current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Honduras who want to continue to maintain their status. The program will be terminated Jan. 5, 2020.
Key dates and deadlines:
Background: The Trump administration ended the TPS designation for Honduras last month with a delayed effective date of Jan. 5, 2020. The Department of Homeland Security has also terminated TPS designation for El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, Nepal and Sudan, and has ended Deferred Enforced Departure for Liberian nationals.
BAL Analysis: Honduran nationals should re-register as soon as possible and not wait until the end of the re-registration period. Employers should be aware of the automatic extension of currently valid TPS Honduras employment authorization documents. DHS has advised Honduran nationals to explore other visa categories or to plan to leave the country by Jan. 5, 2020.
