USCIS Extends EAD Validity for TPS Beneficiaries from El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan

USCIS is extending the validity of certain Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) issued to Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries under the designations of El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan through March 9, 2025. We will mail eligible TPS beneficiaries under these designations a Form I-797, Notice of Action, notifying them of the extension.  

If you are an existing TPS beneficiary under one of these designations, and you have not yet re-registered for TPS under the most recent extension for that designation, you must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, during the current re-registration period to keep your TPS benefits. If you do not re-register properly within the re-registration period, USCIS may withdraw your TPS and related benefits. DHS previously extended the re-registration periods for individuals to submit TPS applications:  

  • El Salvador now runs through March 9, 2025;  
  • Honduras now runs through July 5, 2025;  
  • Nepal now runs through June 24, 2025;  
  • Nicaragua now runs through July 5, 2025; and  
  • Sudan now runs through April 19, 2025.  

Please note that while the re-registration periods end on different dates, EADs are all extended through the same date: March 9, 2025.
