Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a temporary status that the U.S. government grants to persons already in the United States that are from countries determined unsafe for return if:
- There is ongoing armed conflict within the country; or
- A natural or environmental disaster has led to a substantial but temporary disruption of living conditions; or
- Other extraordinary and temporary conditions prevent persons from returning to the country in safety.
When the United States designates a country for TPS status, it will also designate a time period in which persons from that country must register for TPS benefits and as well as a termination date.
To establish your eligibility for TPS, you must:
- provide proof of your identity;
- provide proof that you are a national of a TPS-designated country;
- provide proof that you have been continuously living in the United States since the date of TPS-designation;
- register within the designated registration period; and
- not be subject to certain security and criminal grounds that make you inadmissible.
