TPS Burma (Myanmar) Extended and Redesignated for 18 Months; EADs Automatically Extended Through Nov. 25, 2023
Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated Burma for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) through May 25, 2024. Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register starting Sept. 27, 2022, through Nov. 26, 2022. Burmese nationals and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Burma may submit an initial registration application under the redesignation of Burma for TPS and apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS has automatically extended through Nov. 25, 2023, the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation for Burma.
