USCIS Opens TPS Re-Registration Period for Syrians

Last week, USCIS announced that the re-registration period for Syrians who currently hold Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is open from March 5 to May 4, 2018. Syrian TPS holders must renew their status during this period and maintain all eligibility requirements, including continuous residence since August 1, 2016. Individuals with work permits expiring after March 31 will be given an automatic extension of work authorization until September 27, 2018, while their EAD renewal applications are pending.
