  • Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;

  • Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;

Venezuelans who have resided in the United States since March 8, 2021; and who have been continuously physically present since March 9, 2021, can now apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). You must apply on or before September 5, 2021 using CIS forms I-821 and I-765.

Other Countries–

For El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan, TPS status and employment authorization is extended to October 4, 2021.

This extension is automatic for persons who continue to be eligible for TPS. Persons who want a new employment authorization document valid until October 4, 2021 have the option of filing form I-765 with $410 fee. 



Adjustment of Status for TPS (Immediate Relatives of a United States Citizen)

The Federal Court of Appeals 9th Circuit, in the case of Ramírez v. Brown, ordered that persons with TPS are considered to have been “inspected and admitted” and as such they satisfy the requirements of being considered nonimmigrants for purposes of adjustment of status in the United States.  This means that persons with TPS who are immediate family members of a citizen can apply for permanent residence in the United States without having to appear at a United States consulate or embassy in their country of nationality.

WARNING: Persons who have had a case in Immigration Court should take care their case is properly concluded before applying for Adjustment of Status.
