Temporary Protected Status

Temporary Protected Status Details

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a temporary immigration status granted to eligible nationals of designated countries. TPS beneficiaries will not be required to leave the United States and may obtain work authorization for the initial TPS period and for any extensions of the designation. TPS does not lead to permanent resident status. When the Attorney General terminates a TPS designation, beneficiaries will return to the same immigration status they had before TPS (unless that status has expired or has been terminated) or to any other status they may have been granted while in TPS.

In order to qualify for TPS, you must be a national of one of the following countries.

Individuals in TPS may apply for an EAD and advance parole.

For Whom Is Temporary Protected Status Appropriate?

Foreign nationals of designated countries, where there is an ongoing armed conflict within that country, which poses a serious threat to their personal safety if they were to return.

Temporary Protected Status Requirements

You may be eligible to apply for temporary protected status if:

  • You are a national of a country designated for TPS. (You may also be eligible if you are a person who has no nationality but last habitually resided in a designated country.)
  • You apply for TPS during the specified registration period.
  • You have been continuously physically present in the United States since the TPS designation began, or since the effective date of the most recent re-designation.
  • You have continuously resided in the United States since the date specified in the Federal Register notice of designation.
  • You are admissible as an immigrant and are not otherwise ineligible for TPS.
