Temporary Protected Status: Burmese, Syrians, and Venezuelans

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security authorized temporary protected status (“TPS”) for Burmese, Syrian, and Venezuelan nationals a while ago. In early August 2021, the Department of Homeland Security extended the initial registration period for Burmese, Syrian, and Venezuelans eligible to file new applications (I-821 Form) for temporary protected status. Rather than limit initial registration to 180 days, the Department of Homeland Security extends the initial registration period to 18 months, which is the same time period as the designation for temporary protected status.
