Electronic Immigration Status Verification

SAVE is a fast, secure, and reliable online service that allows federal, state, and local benefit-granting agencies to verify a benefit applicant’s immigration status or naturalized/derived citizenship.

SAVE is administered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a component of the Department of Homeland Security, and is dedicated to providing tailored training, support, and service to meet participating agency needs.


Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas designated Haiti for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, effective August 3, 2021, through February 3, 2023. Haitian nationals and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Haiti may submit an initial registration application under the TPS designation for Haiti during the 18-month registration period that begins August 3, 2021 and ends on February 3, 2023. TPS applicants may also apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
