U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services opened the re-registration period Tuesday for current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Nepal who want to continue to maintain their status. The program will be terminated on June 24, 2019.
Key dates and deadlines:
Background: The Trump administration ended the TPS designation for Nepal last month with a delayed effective date of June 24, 2019. The Department of Homeland Security has also terminated TPS designation for El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Sudan, and has ended Deferred Enforced Departure for Liberian nationals.
BAL Analysis: Nepalese 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 Nepal employment authorization documents. The Department of Homeland Security has advised Nepalese nationals to explore other visa categories or plan to leave the country by June 24, 2019.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice group. For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
