TPS for Syria EADs Automatically Extended through March 28, 2022

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has automatically extended the validity of certain Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) issued under TPS for Syria with a Category Code of A12 or C19 through March 28, 2022.

TPS Syria beneficiaries may provide their expiring EAD with a Category code of A-12 or C-19 along with an individual notice issued by USCIS that they received in the mail, which automatically extends their EAD through March 28, 2022. SAVE will be able to verify the continuation of an applicant's TPS using this notice along with their alien or I–94 number. You may need to perform additional verification steps to confirm the applicant's TPS.
