Starting from November 29, 2021, all applicants who are eligible to file for temporary protect status may file online on the myUSCIS website. 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. To learn more about TPS, please click here.
The following countries are currently designated for TPS:
- Burma (Myanmar)
- El Salvador
- South Sudan
First-time TPS applicants and TPS beneficiaries who are re-registering may apply for TPS online. Applicants can also request an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) by submitting a completed Form I-765 with their Form I-821, or may submit their Form I-765 separately later.
