This week, DHS announced that it was extending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Hondurans and Nicaraguans in the United States. DHS first announced the availability of TPS for citizens of these countries in January 1999.
If you currently have TPS and have maintained your status, you must reregister during the reregistration period. This period will be between October 14, 2014 and December 15, 2014. Your status will be extended until July 5, 2016. The employment authorization document that you have will be automatically extended until January 5, 2015 while you are waiting for your new employment authorization document.
If you do not currently have TPS or if you did not reregister, you may register 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.
