Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson has redesignated South Sudan for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and extended the existing TPS designation from May 3, 2016, through November 2, 2017.

Due to the ongoing armed conflict and current conditions, those who already have TPS may extend their current status. Those who do not currently have TPS, but are nationals of South Sudan, or those who last resided there, may apply for TPS so long as they resided in the United States before January 25, 2016 and pass the required background security checks.

TPS extension and registration can be done between January 25 through July 25 of 2016. If you believe your are eligible for TPS, or have any questions regarding your eligibility, contact the attorneys at Brown Immigration Law right away at or 888.861.4414
