Breaking: DHS Extends TPS Re-Registration Dates for the Countries of El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan.

Nationwide- Today, the Department of Homeland Security has declared an extension for TPS Re-Registration for nationals of El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan. This announcement arrives just ahead of the final Re-Registration day for TPS Holders from El Salvador. This re-registration extension will allow TPS beneficiaries to submit their documents anytime during the 18-Month Extension of their TPS. 

This extension follows closely on the heels of DHS's announcement extending TPS for countries involved in the Ramos litigation, and the recent en banc hearing in Seattle, which took place nearly two months ago. While we eagerly await additional information on these extensions through the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Register Notice, it is  crucial to recognize that each country has distinct extension dates, re-registration periods, and specific requirements. The extension of TPS status for each country remains the same. It is only the re-registration period, or the time that each country is allowed to apply for re-registration, that has been extended. 

The re-registration period is extended for each country: 

  • El Salvador now runs through March 9, 2025; 
  • Haiti now runs through Aug. 3, 2024; 
  • Honduras now runs through July 5, 2025; 
  • Nepal now runs through June 24, 2025;  
  • Nicaragua now runs through July 5, 2025; and 
  • Sudan now runs through April 19, 2025. 

In Response Camila Alvarez, Legal Director of the Central American Resource Center Has Issued the Following Statement:

We have been deeply concerned about the confusion that has persisted within the TPS community during the re-registration period due to varying re-registration dates for the different countries. Throughout the re-registration period for El Salvador, we witnessed the mounting pressure as we approached the final re-registration day. With the new extended deadline, TPS holders now have the valuable time needed to re-register for TPS and keep their rights and protections. It is  important to note that this announcement does not change the previous extensions of TPS designations and eligibility requirements. It only provides more time for TPS holders from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan to apply for re-registration. 

CARECEN maintains its commitment to providing free re-registration legal services and filing fee assistance for nationals of all TPS countries. We invite members of our community  for a Legal Charla on Monday September 11, 2023 at 5:30 pm at our CARECEN- LA offices for the most updated information and answers to the most frequently asked questions.
