TPS for Honduras Terminated Effective Jan. 5, 2020; EADs Automatically Extended Through Jan. 1, 2019
Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen announced her decision to terminate the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for Honduras, with a delayed effective date of 18 months, through Jan. 5, 2020.
Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status until the delayed effective date of the termination must re-register between June 5, 2018, and Aug. 6, 2018.
Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS recognizes that not all re-registrants will receive new Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) before their current EADs expire. Accordingly, USCIS has automatically extended the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of Honduras through Jan. 1, 2019.
