U.S. Extends TPS Status for Nepalis Present in the United States Since June 2015

The U.S. Government has extended the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) of Nepalis who were displaced by the 2015 earthquakes and who were continuously physically present in the United States since June 24, 2015.  The TPS status, which was set to expire on December 25, 2016 has now been extended to June 24, 2018. 

According to a press release issued by US Embassy, Nepali individuals who have already been granted this status must re-register for TPS and apply for renewal of their Employment Authorization Documents (EAD). TPS is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status or give any other immigration status.

On June 24, 2015, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of the United States announced the designation of Temporary Protected Status for Nepalis temporarily in the United States who had been displaced by the April 25, 2015 earthquake. 

The U.S. Embassy advises the public to be cautious of fraudulent promises related to visas and TPS status.  It is important to understand what TPS is and how the process works by going through the information provided at: https://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/temporary-protected-status/temporary-protected-status-designated-country-nepal.
