Nicaragua TPS Extension

On May 16, 2016, the Department of Homeland Security announced an 18-month extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Honduras and Nicaragua, effective July 6, 2016 through January 5, 2018. TPS is provided to foreign nationals of certain countries who are already residing in the United States when it is determined that conditions in the home country, such as civil war or national disaster, temporarily prevent safe return. Such beneficiaries can obtain employment authorization during the period of TPS by applying for an EAD card.
