Temporary Protected Status for Nicaragua and Honduras

Department of Homeland Security - USCIS has extended Temporary Protected Status for Nicaragua and Honduras for 18 months from July 6, 2013 through January 5, 2015.

Immigrants that currently have TPS can re-register to extend their status. Also, employment authorization cards (EADs) are extended for another 6 months from July 5, 2013 through January 5, 2014,

Honduras:

“The extension allows currently eligibleTPS beneficiaries to retain TPS through January 5, 2015. The Secretary has determined that an extension is warranted because the conditions in Honduras that prompted the TPS designation continue to be met. There continues to be a substantial, but temporary, disruption of living conditions in Honduras resulting from Hurricane Mitch, and Honduras remains unable, temporarily, to handle adequately the return of its nationals.”

Nicaragua:

January 5, 2015. The Secretary has determined that an extension is warranted because
the conditions inNicaragua that prompted the TPS designation continue to be met.
