Secretary Mayorkas has announced the extension of temporary protected status for Venezuela. The 18-month extension of TPS for Venezuela will be effective from September 10, 2022, through March 10, 2024. Beneficiaries under Venezuela’s existing designation, and who were already residing in the United States as of March 8, 2021, are eligible to re-register for TPS under this extension. Venezuelans who are currently eligible for TPS under the existing designation but may have not yet applied with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) should file their applications prior to the September 9, 2022, application deadline. Please contact our office if you have any questions or need to file your application.
