On Sept. 7, 2022, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted for public inspection a Federal Register notice explaining how beneficiaries under Venezuela’s existing Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation can re-register to retain TPS and renew their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs). Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas previously announced an 18-month extension of the designation of Venezuela for TPS. This extension will be effective from Sept. 10, 2022, through March 10, 2024. Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register Sept. 8, 2022 to Nov. 7, 2022. Only beneficiaries under Venezuela’s existing designation who were already residing in the United States as of March 8, 2021, are eligible to re-register for TPS under this extension. Venezuelans who arrived in the United States after March 8, 2021, are not eligible for TPS. Approximately 323,000 individuals were estimated to be eligible for TPS under the existing designation of Venezuela.
