DHS Designates Afghanistan for TPS

Afghanistan Flag

The Department of Homeland Security announced on May 19, 2021 that Afghanistan has been designated for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months from May 20, 2022 to November 20, 2023. TPS is granted to certain groups of people in the wake of natural disasters, wars, outbreaks of disease, and other catastrophes that would make it difficult for them to return safely to their home countries. Government officials periodically review the program to decide whether to extend it, and most groups have received regular extensions in the past. Please click here to learn more about TPS.

Individuals eligible for TPS under this designation must have continuously resided in the United States since March 15, 2022 and have been continuously physically present in the US since May 20, 2022. Individuals who attempt to travel to the United States after March 15, 2022, will not be eligible for TPS. Applicants may also apply for EADs and for travel authorization during this time by submitting the corresponding forms and fee(s) or fee waiver request. TPS applicants must meet all eligibility requirements and undergo security and background checks.
