On Monday, September 23, 2019, USCIS announced a re-registration period for individuals with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under Syria’s designation, can extended their designation until March 31, 2019.

Background:

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.
