USCIS Engagement: Sudan Temporary Protected Status Designation
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services invites you to participate in an engagement on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Sudan on Tuesday, July 26, from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern.
On March 2, 2022, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas announced the designation of Sudan for TPS for 18 months. The new TPS designation of Sudan enables nationals of Sudan and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Sudan, and who have continuously resided in the United States since March 1, 2022, to file initial applications for TPS. This designation also allows nationals of Sudan who currently have TPS, and whose TPS-related documents were extended pursuant to court orders through at least Dec. 31, 2022, to also file an initial application under this new designation. This will allow current Sudan TPS beneficiaries to retain their status without a gap in coverage if they are otherwise eligible.
During this engagement, USCIS will provide an overview of the designation of Sudan for TPS. We will then hold a question-and-answer session. We will not address case-specific questions, questions outside the scope of the engagement, or issues under active litigation.
