Monday, March 9, 2015, is the deadline for current El Salvador Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries to re-register for the 18-month extension of TPS that runs from March 10, 2015, through Sept. 9, 2016. The law requires USCIS to withdraw TPS for failure to re-register without good cause. Therefore, if you fail to re-register by this deadline, you may lose your TPS and your work authorization.
You can find details and procedures for re-registering for TPS on the USCIS website and in the Federal Register notice announcing the extension of TPS for El Salvador.
Eligible El Salvador TPS beneficiaries who re-register during the registration period and request employment authorization will receive a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD) with an expiration date of Sept. 9, 2016. USCIS recognizes that some re-registrants whose EADs expire in March may not receive their new EADs until after their current ones have expired. Therefore, USCIS is automatically extending current TPS El Salvador EADs with a March 9, 2015, expiration date for an additional six months. These existing EADs are now valid through Sept. 9, 2015.
Re-registration Deadline for El Salvador TPS is March 9, 2015 (2015, March). Web. March 3, 2015.
