TPS is a temporary immigration status granted to eligible nationals of a country designated for TPS under the Immigration laws of the United States, or to eligible persons without nationality who last habitually resided in the designated country.
Some foreign nationals may qualify for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) provided they meet specific criteria announced by USCIS. This temporary status is granted to eligible nationals from designated countries. Once the application is applied for with USCIS and approved, the individual will be able to remain in the United States for a designated period and legally work.
The U.S. government will designate a country for TPS when it determines that:
A TPS designation will be effective for a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 18 months.
Before the end of the TPS designation period, the U.S. government will review the conditions in the designated state and determine whether the conditions that led to the TPS designation continue to be met. Unless a determination is made that those conditions are no longer met, the TPS designation will be extended for 6, 12, or 18 months. If the conditions that led to the TPS designation are no longer met, the Secretary will terminate the TPS designation. Designations, extensions, terminations and other documents regarding TPS are published in the Federal Register.
