August 3, 2021: Extension of Initial Registration Period for TPS for Burma (Myanmar), Syria, and Venezuela

The Department of Homeland Security today published a Federal Register notice (FRN) announcing extensions of the initial registration periods from 180 days to 18 months for initial (new) applicants under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations of Venezuela and Burma as well as the redesignation of Syria.

This extension will allow individuals to submit an initial Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, and an application for an Employment Authorization Document (if desired) at any time during the 18-month designation or redesignation period for these three countries.
