TPS Extended for Somalia – Grand Rapids Immigration Law Can Help File Extension

The United States Department of Homeland Security has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Somalia (and eligible individuals without nationality who last habitually resided in Somalia) for an additional 18 months, effective Sept. 18, 2015, through March 17, 2017.

It is important to note that current TPS Somalia beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS must re-register during the 60-day re-registration period which runs from June 1, 2015, through July 31, 2015. The USCIS is encouraging beneficiaries to re-register as soon as possible.

The 18-month extension also allows TPS re-registrants to apply for a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Eligible TPS Somalia beneficiaries who re-register during the 60-day period and request a new EAD will receive one with an expiration date of March, 17, 2017.

If you are Somalia beneficary on TPS, please call the Grand Rapids immigration law firm, Mirque Law PLLC, and speak with attorney Robert F. Mirque, Jr. about extending both your TPS and employment authorization for 18 months. Remember, there is only a 60 day window of opportunity to re-register. Our number is 616-233-9300.
