The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from Nepal must re-register between May 22, 2018, and July 23, 2018. Upon approval, the new work authorization documents will be valid until June 24, 2019. In addition, current TPS Nepal work authorization cards are automatically extended through December 21, 2018.
Applicants must have been continuously present and continuously residing in the United States since before June 24, 2015, and will have to go through security checks to make sure that they do not have disqualifying criminal records. Those who have been convicted of a felony or two or more misdemeanors in the U.S. will not qualify for TPS.
As previously announced in April, DHS will terminate TPS for Nepal on June 24, 2019. We strongly advise TPS beneficiaries to not only renew their TPS but also consult with a qualified immigration attorney regarding a longer term immigration plan now that TPS Nepal’s end is on the horizon.
If you or someone you know would like to discuss TPS eligibility or longer term strategy, contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our immigration attorneys.
