The Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of El Salvador for an additional 18 months, beginning Sept 10, 2013 ending March 9, 2015.
Salvadorian Beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS must re-register during the 60 day re-registration that will be available starting May 30, 2013, through July 29, 2013. The USCIS office recommends beneficiaries to register as soon as possible once the 60 day period begins.
This 18 month extension allowa TPS re-registrants to apply for a new employment authorization document (EAD). Salvadorian TPS beneficiaries who re-register during this registration period will receive a new EAD with an expiration date of March 9, 2015. The USCIS recognizes that some re-registrants may not receive their EAD until the current one expires. USCIS is automatically extending current TPS El Salvador EADs bearing in September 9, 2013, expiration date for additional six months. These existing EADs are now valid through march 9, 2014.
