Applications for Syrians Seeking Temporary Protected Status
Syria was recently a designated country for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) by USCIS due to the political instability in Syria. Under TPS, Syrians who are now in the US will soon be able to apply for an 18 month initial TPS and employment authorizations with extensions thereafter.
Though USCIS has instructed applicants not to submit applications yet, with more guidance in the following weeks, now is the time for potential applicants to prepare. It is important to keep in mind that TPS must be applied for and is not granted automatically; rather, applicants must show their eligibility and said applicants will be subject to background checks. Our professionals are prepared to apply for applicants and if necessary, seek waivers for certain noncriminal and non-security grounds of ineligibility.
We look forward to working with you. For any questions, please contact us.
