The Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, will extend the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Sudan for an additional 18 months. The extension is effective Nov. 3, 2014 through May 2, 2016.
Current Sudanese beneficiaries who are seeking to extend their TPS status must re-register during a 60-day period that will run from Sept. 2, 2014 until Nov. 3, 2014. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) encourages beneficiaries to re-register as soon as they possibly can once the 60-day period begins. USCIS will not accept applications before Sept. 2, 2014.
