All applicants must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status. Those seeking an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) must also submit Form I-765.

TPS Nicaragua Ending in January 2019

Current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under Nicaragua’s designation who want to maintain their status through Jan. 5, 2019, must re-register between Dec. 15, 2017 and Feb. 13, 2018. Eligible beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for an EAD will be issued cards with an expiration date of January 5, 2019.

As not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on Jan. 5, 2018, DHS has automatically extended the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of Nicaragua for 60 days, through March 6, 2018. Further, beneficiaries who timely re-register and properly file EAD applications will have the validity of their current EADs automatically extended for up to 180 days from the date their current EADs expire, through July 4, 2018.
