Temporary Protected Status Extension and Redesignation for Ukraine
Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2-3 p.m. Eastern
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invites you to participate in an engagement on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Ukraine on Tuesday, Oct. 3 from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern.
On Aug. 18, 2023, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas announced the extension and redesignation of Ukraine for TPS for 18 months. The extension of TPS for Ukraine allows current beneficiaries to retain TPS through April 19, 2025, if they meet eligibility requirements. Existing beneficiaries of TPS for Ukraine seeking to avoid gaps in their employment authorization documentation may re-register during the 60-day re-registration period which runs from Aug. 21, 2023, through Oct. 20, 2023. The redesignation allows Ukrainian nationals (and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Ukraine) who have continuously resided in the United States since Aug. 16, 2023, and have been continuously physically present in the United States since Oct. 20, 2023, to file initial applications for TPS, if they are otherwise eligible.
During this engagement, USCIS will provide an overview of the extension and redesignation of Ukraine 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.
