On December 7, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced a Federal Register notice extending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and the validity of work authorization for beneficiaries under the TPS designations for El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan. The notice automatically extends through Oct. 4, 2021, the validity of Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) and TPS approval notices for beneficiaries under the TPS designations for these six countries.

This DHS announcement does not provide a new application period for first-time TPS applicants. It only extends the employment authorization and lawful status period of persons from the six designated countries who already hold TPS. See this USCIS webpage for additional information about TPS, including other countries currently designated for TPS.

The Los Angeles County Office of Immigrant Affairs (OIA) encourages all persons seeking advice about TPS, including eligibility to travel outside the United States while in TPS, to consult with a licensed attorney or authorized nonprofit legal service provider.  OIA can help you connect with a legal service provider.
