On Friday, August 18, 2023, the Department of Homeland Security announced that they were extending the designation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the country of Sudan for 18 months, from October 20, 2023, through April 19, 2025! Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas stated, “Under this extension and redesignation, we will continue to offer safety and protection to Sudanese nationals until conditions in their home country improve.”
For further details please review the USCIS News Release, “Secretary Mayorkas Extends and Redesignates Temporary Protected Status for Sudan“
The Secretary of Homeland Security may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately. USCIS may grant TPS to eligible nationals of certain countries (or parts of countries), who are already in the United States. Eligible individuals without nationality who last resided in the designated country may also be granted TPS.
