If My TPS is Ending Soon, What Should I Do?

By Attorney Cynthia Milian

The Administration has decided to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for various countries in the past few months. Most recently, the Administration ended TPS for Honduras. Below is a list of when the program will end for the following countries:

  • Sudan- November 2, 2018
  • Nicaragua- January 5, 2019
  • Liberia- March 31, 2019
  • Nepal- June 24, 2019
  • Haiti- July 22, 2019
  • El Salvador-September 9, 2019
  • Honduras-January 5, 2020

TPS is generally granted to migrants after natural disasters or violent conflicts prevent them from safely returning to their countries.

While the program is ending, for some countries the benefits of TPS remain in effect until 2020. However, now is the time to look for immigration solutions. Contact an immigration attorney to and consider the following:

  • Check whether you previously had an order of deportation;
  • Check if you may qualify for an extension of status;
  • Begin preparing all of your documents to see if you qualify for another immigration benefit;
  • Verify the expiration date of your work permit;
  • Ensure you contact a qualified immigration attorney, and not a public notary, or “notario;”
