The Department of Homeland Security has redesigned Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and extended the existing TPS designation for the country from Oct. 1, 2016, through March 31, 2018. This allows eligible nationals of Syria (or persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Syria) to register or re-register for TPS.
Current TPS beneficiaries from Syria may extend their TPS by reregistering during the 60-day re-registration period that runs from Aug. 1, 2016, through Sept. 30, 2016.
Syrian nationals and persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Syria, who continuously resided in the United States since Aug. 1, 2016, and who have been continuously physically present in the United States since Oct. 1, 2016, may apply for TPS during the 180-day initial registration period that runs from Aug. 1, 2016, through Jan. 30, 2017.
