USCIS extends TPS Designation for Nepal
The Secretary of Homeland Security has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Nepal (and those without nationality who last habitually resided in Nepal) for an additional 18 months, from Dec. 25, 2016, through June 24, 2018. DHS is also automatically extending current TPS Nepal Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) with a Dec. 24, 2016, expiration date for 6 months. These existing EADs are now valid through June 24, 2017.
Further details on this extension of TPS for Nepal may be found in the Federal Register. Additional information on TPS for Nepal is available at www.uscis.gov/tps. Employers verifying or reverifying the employment eligibility of employees who are TPS beneficiaries from Nepal should refer to the Temporary Protected Status page on I-9 Central.
