Department of Homeland Security Announces Registration Process for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Ukraine and Sudan

Published on April 19, 2022

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) previously announced the designation of Ukraine and Sudan for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months. DHS has now posted information about how to register for TPS under each country’s designation. The registration process for both countries begins on April 19, 2022 and will end on October 19, 2023. All individuals applying for TPS from Ukraine and Sudan must file a Form I-821 application with USCIS during the registration period, and may file a Form I-765 Application for Employment Authorization along with the TPS application.

Ukrainian nationals who have been continuously residing in the United States since April 11, 2022 are eligible to apply for TPS, changing the previous March 1, 2022 cut-off date. Nationals of Sudan must demonstrate their continuous residence in the United States since March 1, 2022. Individuals from both countries must demonstrate continuous physical presence in the United States since the designation date in the Federal Register notice in order to qualify for TPS.

Please contact the Immigration Attorneys at Ryan Swanson if you have any questions or need assistance with a TPS application for a Ukrainian or Sudanese national.
