DHS Announces 18-Month Redesignation & Extension of TPS for Syria

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced a Temporary Protection Status (TPS)  and extended the existing TPS designation for Syria from October 1 2016 to March 31st 2018. This announcement enables qualified Syrian nationals (or those who have lived in Syria but are not Syrian nationals)  to register for Temporary Protection Status.


If you are a current beneficiary of TPS from Syria and want to extend TPS, then you will need to re-register during the 60-day re-registration period (August 1, 2016, through September 30, 2016). If you not a TPS beneficiary but are a Syrian national or have lived in Syria and has lived in the United States since August 2016 and have been physical resided in the United States since October 1, 2016 you may also qualify for TPS. To obtain TPS, the applicant must apply for TPS during the 180-day initial registration period (August 1, 2016, through January 30, 2017).
