Temporary Protected Status
Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a temporary status available to foreign nationals who are seeking refuge due to an ongoing armed conflict, extraordinary natural disaster, an epidemic, or other extraordinary temporary conditions in their home country. The Secretary of Homeland Security must designate a foreign country for TPS due to the conditions in that country. TPS status is granted for 6 to 18 months, and beneficiaries can obtain employment authorization and may be granted travel authorization. TPS is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status or confer any other immigration status.
If you believe that you may be eligible for TPS or to explore your immigration options prior to the termination of your TPS status, please contact Eagan Immigration for assistance. Our attorney will review your case to determine whether or not you may be eligible for TPS.
