DHS Announces The Re-Registration Process for Venezuela TPS
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a notice explaining how beneficiaries under Venezuela’s current TPS designation can re-register for TPS and renew their Employment Authorization Documents (EAD). Only beneficiaries of the initial TPS designation for Venezuela who were residing in the US since March 2021 are eligible to re-register and renew their EADs as long as they continue to meet the eligibility requirements. The 60 day period to re-register is from September 8, 2022 to November 7, 2022.
Given the backlog and time frames for processing TPS and EADs, DHS notes that many registrants may not receive their new EADs before their current ED expires. Due to this, all EADs for Venezuelan TPS are automatically extended through September 9, 2023.
