The Department of Homeland Security today published a Federal Register notice (FRN) announcing the designation of Venezuela for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, effective March 9, 2021, through Sept. 9, 2022.
The FRN details the eligibility criteria Venezuelan nationals (and individuals without nationality who last habitually resided in Venezuela) must meet and describes procedures necessary to submit an initial TPS application and apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
Additionally, the FRN provides information about Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for covered Venezuelan nationals (and individuals without nationality who last habitually resided in Venezuela) and how to apply for DED-related EADs.
