WASHINGTON — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under Syria’s designation who want to maintain their status through March 31, 2021, must re-register between Sept. 23 and Nov. 22, 2019.

Re-registration procedures, including how to renew employment authorization documents (EADs), have been published in the Federal Register and are available at uscis.gov/tps.

All applicants must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status. Applicants may also request an EAD by submitting Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, when they file Form I-821 or separately at a later date. Like all USCIS forms, both forms are free for download from the USCIS website at uscis.gov/forms.

USCIS will issue new EADs with a March 31, 2021, expiration date to eligible beneficiaries under Syria’s TPS designation who timely re-register and apply for an EAD. Given the timeframe for processing TPS re-registration applications, we recognize that not all re-registrants will receive a new EAD before their current EAD expires on Sept. 30, 2019. Accordingly, we have automatically extended the validity of those EADs for 180 days, through March 28, 2020.  This automatic extension also covers individuals who have an EAD with an expiration date of March 31, 2018, and who applied for a new EAD during the last re-registration period but have not yet received their new EAD.

On Aug. 1, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin K. McAleenan announced that the statutory conditions supporting Syria’s TPS designation on the basis of ongoing armed conflict and extraordinary and temporary conditions continue to exist and that the designation should be extended for 18 months. Secretary McAleenan made his decision after reviewing country conditions and consulting with appropriate U.S. government agencies. As a result, Syria’s TPS designation is extended through March 31, 2021.
