NEWS: Venezuelan Nationals Now Eligible for TPS

The United States designated Venezuela for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, effective March 9, 2021, through Sept. 9, 2022. People from Venezuela may submit an initial registration application during the 180-day registration period that begins March 9, 2021, and ends on Sept. 5, 2021, and apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Once a beneficiary is granted TPS, they are authorized to work.

This means we have to file your application before September 5, 2021 or you will lose your ability to apply. If you need to apply for TPS, contact us online or call (972) 497-1017 today. Se habla Español.

What is TPS?

The United States may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country's nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.

The U.S. may designate a country for TPS due to the following temporary conditions in the country:

  • Ongoing armed conflict (such as civil war)
  • An environmental disaster (such as earthquake or hurricane), or an epidemic
  • Other extraordinary and temporary conditions

During a designated period, individuals who have TPS:

  • Are not removable from the United States
  • Can obtain an employment authorization document (EAD)
  • May be granted travel authorization
  • Cannot be detained by DHS on the basis of his or her immigration status in the United States.

TPS is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status or give any other immigration status. It is however life changing and will allow those who have it to live and work in the United States legally. If you have any questions, or think you may qualify, please give our office a call.

Contact Christensen Immigration Attorneys at (972) 497-1017 to determine your eligibility for TPS or seek guidance through the application or renewal process.

Determining Eligibility for TPS

In order to be eligible, the person must be a national or resident of a TPS designated country and file during the designation period. In addition, you must have been continuously physically present and continuously residing in the United States since the most recent designation date for your country. After TPS is granted, it needs to be renewed every other year.

A TPS applicant or beneficiary may be ineligible or lose eligibility for felony convictions, two or more misdemeanor convictions, failure to meet other eligibility requirements, or due to any of the mandatory bars to asylum, such as engaging or inciting terrorist activity or persecution of another individual. The best way to determine eligibility for TPS is to consult with an immigration lawyer in Coppell.
