Temporary Protected Status Extension and Redesignation for Ethiopia

Latest News

Tuesday, June 11, 2024
2-3 p.m. Eastern

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services invites you to participate in a stakeholder engagement on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Ethiopia on Tuesday, June 11, from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern.

On April 12, 2024, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas announced the extension and redesignation of Ethiopia for TPS for 18 months. The extension of TPS for Ethiopia allows current beneficiaries to retain TPS through Dec. 12, 2025, if they meet eligibility requirements. Existing beneficiaries of TPS for Ethiopia seeking to avoid gaps in their employment authorization may re-register during the 60-day re-registration period which runs from April 15, 2024, through June 14, 2024. The redesignation allows Ethiopian nationals (and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Ethiopia) who have continuously resided in the United States since April 11, 2024, and have been continuously physically present in the United States since June 13, 2024, to file initial applications for TPS, if they are otherwise eligible.

During this engagement, USCIS will provide an overview of the extension and redesignation of Ethiopia for TPS. We will then hold a question-and-answer session. We will not address case-specific questions, questions outside the scope of the engagement, or issues under active litigation.
