U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under South Sudan’s designation who want to maintain their status through May 2, 2022, must re-register for TPS beginning Nov. 2, 2020 through Jan. 4, 2021.
All applicants who wish to re-register for TPS must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status. Applicants may also request an EAD by submitting Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, when they file Form I-821, or separately at a later date.
USCIS will issue new EADs with a May 2, 2022, expiration date to eligible beneficiaries under South Sudan’s TPS designation who timely re-register and apply for an EAD.
