Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today has announced that she will be designating Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for a period of 18 months.
The registration period opened on March 29, 2012, and will run until September 25, 2012. TPS status will remain in effect through September 30, 2013.
To be eligible for TPS, Syrians must meet all individual requirements for TPS, including demonstrating that they have continually resided and been continually physically present in the United States since March 29, 2012.
They may also request employment authorization (EAD cards). For more information, please visit the USCIS website.
In addition, the Department of Homeland Security has relaxed certain requirements for F-1 students from Syria, to make it easier for them to apply for employment authorization (EAD cards).
If you are a Syrian national presently in the U.S. and have questions about your eligibility for Temporary Protected Status, please contact Managing Partner Michael Wildes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Michael and his entire team are professional, diligent and knowledgeable, effective and efficient, patient in guidance and interaction, and confident and reassuring in attitude. In brief: excellent partners and guides for the complex immigration journey.Jonatan S Date : September 14, 2023
