Temporary Protected Status

Schach Law Group, APC

We provide assistance with obtaining Temporary Protected Status for those eligible by working with US Citizenship and Immigration Services to get a work permit for our applicant.

A foreign country may be designated for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.
USCIS may grant TPS to eligible nationals of certain countries (or parts of countries), who are already in the United States. Eligible individuals without nationality who last resided in the designated country may also be granted TPS.

During a designated period, individuals who are TPS beneficiaries or who are found preliminarily eligible for TPS upon initial review of their cases:

  • Are not removable from the United States
  • Can obtain an employment authorization document (EAD)
  • May be granted travel authorization
Once granted TPS, an individual also cannot be detained by Department of Homeland Security on the basis of his or her immigration status in the United States.

TPS is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status or give any other immigration status.

However, registration for TPS does not prevent you from:

  • Applying for nonimmigrant status
  • Filing for adjustment of status based on an immigrant petition
  • Applying for any other immigration benefit or protection for which you may be eligible

These countries are presently eligible for TPS:

  • El Salvador
  • Haiti
  • Honduras
  • Nepal
  • Nicaragua
  • Somalia
  • Sudan
  • South Sudan
  • Syria
  • Venezuela
  • Yemen
It depends. The filing fee varies between $50-$545 depending if you want a work permit, if the filing is a renewal and he age of the applicant.
​Yes. TPS status must be renewed as it will expire. If you do not renew the TPS you will be eligible for removal as you will not have the protection under the status.
