Temporary Protected Status - Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need to re-register if my Temporary Protected Status is extended?

Yes, if you are granted TPS, you must re-register with the USCIS for each period that your TPS benefits are extended. To re-register, submit a completed Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, and Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, during the period stated in the Federal Register notice of extension of the TPS designation. If you do not re-register each period, your TPS will be withdrawn.


Can I appeal a denial of my application for Temporary Protected Status?

If your application for TPS is denied, you will receive instructions telling you whether or not you are allowed to appeal the decision. Instructions on how to appeal will be included in the notice of denial.

What is Deferred Enforced Departure (DED)?

Like TPS, DED is a temporary protection from removal which is granted to foreign nationals from a designated country. Unlike TPS, DED is designated by the Office of the President of the United States of America, as a constitutional power to conduct foreign relations. The Secretary of Homeland Security can designate a country for TPS, but the President is the one to designate DED for nationals of a particular country by Executive Order or Presidential Memorandum. DED was first used in 1990 and has been used a total of five times.
