TIM, Immigration, USCIS Alert

 

Friday, July 31, 2015, is the deadline for current Somalia Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries to re-register for the 18-month extension of TPS that runs from Sept. 18, 2015, through March 17, 2017. The law requires USCIS to withdraw TPS for failure to re-register without good cause. Therefore, if you fail to re-register by this deadline, you may lose your TPS and your work authorization.

You can find details and procedures for re-registering for TPS on the USCIS website and in the Federal Register notice announcing the extension of TPS for Somalia.

Eligible Somalia TPS beneficiaries who re-register during the registration period and request employment authorization will receive a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD) with an expiration date of March 17, 2017.

To re-register, you must submit:

You may request that USCIS waive the Form I-765 application fee or biometrics fee based on an inability to pay. To do so, you must file Form I-912, Request for Fee Waiver, or submit a written request. You must also send in supporting documentation with your fee-waiver request. USCIS will reject the TPS application of any applicant who fails to submit the required filing fees or a properly documented fee-waiver request.

Additional information about TPS for Somalia —including guidance on eligibility, the application process and where to file—is available at uscis.gov/tps and the TPS Somalia page.
