As of Nov. 29, all applicants eligible to file for TPS under one of the current designations may file Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, and Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, online. The following countries are currently designated for TPS:
- Burma (Myanmar)
- El Salvador
- South Sudan
First-time TPS applicants and TPS beneficiaries who are re-registering may apply for TPS online. Applicants can request an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) by submitting a completed Form I-765 with their Form I-821, or may submit their Form I-765 separately later. However, filing both forms together may help applicants receive their EAD more promptly.
To file Form I-821 online, eligible TPS applicants should visit our myUSCIS page to log into or create a USCIS online account. This free account offers a variety of features, including the ability to communicate with us about their application through a secure inbox.
