USCIS just extended the Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, initial registration periods for Venezuela, Burma, and Syria for the full 18-month designation period for each country. This gives everyone from these countries more time to file for TPS.

Venezuela: The 18-month registration period to apply for TPS now runs from March 9, 2021, through Sept. 9, 2022.

Burma: The 18-month registration period now runs from May 25, 2021, through Nov. 25, 2022.

Syria: The 18-month registration period for initial applications under the redesignation of TPS for Syria now runs from March 19, 2021, through Sept. 30, 2022. Note that this announcement does not change registration dates for current Syria TPS holders, which closed on May 18, 2021. This announcement applies to those newly registering under Syria’s redesignation.

If you are from any of these countries, we strongly recommend you look into the possibility for you to apply for TPS. We know of people who didn’t apply on time for their country when it was available and regretted it the rest of their lives. Once USCIS closes registration, they don’t open it again. Give us a call if you are from one of these countries to see if you qualify.
