TPS for Cameroon Extended and Redesignated for 18 Months; EADs Automatically Extended Through Dec. 7, 2024
Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated Cameroon for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from Dec. 8, 2023, through June 7, 2025. Cameroonian nationals and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Cameroon may submit an initial registration application under the redesignation of Cameroon 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 Dec. 7, 2024, the validity of certain EADs issued under the TPS designation for Cameroon.
