TPS re-registration period ends for Honduras and Nicaragua

Today is the last day for Hondurans and Nicaraguans to re-register for the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program.

When U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced the extension of TPS for Honduras and Nicaragua in May of this year, it stipulated that Friday, July 15, 2016 would be the deadline for re-registrations to close.

Hondurans and Nicaraguans currently enrolled in TPS must re-register for the program in order to continue living and working legally in the United States until January 5, 2018.

If you do not have enough money to file because you are unemployed, earn below the poverty level, or receive public benefits such as Medicaid, Medi-Cal, or food stamps, you may be eligible to apply for a fee waiver.

Persons who have been found guilty of two misdemeanors or one felony. no are eligible for TPS.

Beware of fraud! Hondurans and Nicaraguans who recently arrived to the United States for the first time no are eligible for TPS.

The TPS no leads to permanent residency in the United States. Someday the program will end.

Consult with an immigration attorney as soon as possible to evaluate your legal options for permanent residency.
