U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that certain Hondurans, Nicaraguans and Salvadorans will be eligible for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) re-registration. Those who have applications pending with USCIS and are awaiting an employment authorization document (EAD), will receive a letter giving them the opportunity to have an extension sticker affixed to their EAD while USCIS completes their TPS application.

According to the USCIS, there will NOT be a Federal Register notice automatically extending previously issued work cards further for this group. Applicants need not appear at USCIS district offices to seek an extension sticker or an interim EAD. Instead, USCIS will mail eligible TPS re-registrants a letter instructing them about how to proceed to a USCIS Application Support Center (ASC) to receive the short-duration extension sticker.

USCIS is working to produce and to mail the letters giving eligible re-registrants the opportunity to appear at an ASC to receive the extension sticker in the coming days in order to minimize any lapse in documentation of employment authorization for those TPS beneficiaries who have not received a renewal EAD.

Customers who receive the short-duration extension sticker while USCIS continues processing their applications will receive an extension valid through June 2007 to serve for “I-9 Employment Authorization” purposes. USCIS recognizes that the auto-extension of existing EAD's expired on Friday, January 5, 2007, for Honduras and Nicaragua and on March 9, 2007 for El Salvador. USCIS has started to mail out the letters giving eligible re-registrants the opportunity to appear at an ASC to receive the extension sticker beginning on Monday, March 5, 2007. One can verify an applicant's continuing status and employment authorization by using the case receipt number and checking USCIS Case Status Online.
