Temporary Protected Status for Ethiopia
Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2-3 p.m. Eastern
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services invites you to participate in an engagement on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Ethiopia on Feb. 21, from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern.
On Oct. 21, 2022, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas announced the designation of Ethiopia for TPS for 18 months. This designation of Ethiopia allows Ethiopian nationals and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Ethiopia, and who have continuously resided in the United States since Oct. 20, 2022 and have been continuously physically present in the United States since Dec. 12, 2022, to file initial applications for TPS, if they are otherwise eligible.
During this engagement, USCIS will provide an overview of the designation of Ethiopia 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.
