On June 1, 2015 DHS announced that it was extending Temporary Protected Status (“TPS”) for Somalis in the United States. DHS first announced the availability of TPS for Somalis in 1991.
If you currently have TPS and have maintained your status, you must reregister during the reregistration period. This period will be between June 1 and July 31, 2015. Your status will be extended until March 17, 2017 once your application is approved. It is important to file in a timely manner.
If you do not currently have TPS or if you did not reregister during earlier reregistration periods, you may register now if you meet certain conditions. For example, if you could not register because of compelling circumstances, you may be eligible to do so now. You should consult an immigration attorney to determine whether you meet the conditions for late initial registration or late reregistration.
