TPS Registration Period for Venezuelans ends Sept. 5, 2021
On March 8, 2021, the Secretary of Homeland Security designated Venezuela for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for an 18-month period lasting until September 2022 which could be extended depending on country conditions. Venezuelan TPS applicants must apply during the registration period between March 8, 2021 and Sept. 5, 2021 (subject to certain exceptions). Only individuals who demonstrate continuous residence in the United States as of March 8, 2021, and physical presence as of March 9, 2021, are eligible for TPS under Venezuela’s designation. Applicants are also eligible to apply for travel authorization and employment authorization (EACs) that will be valid through September 9, 2022. Certain individuals may not be eligible for TPS based on convictions for any felony or two or more misdemeanors committed in the United States.
