18-Month Extension of Temporary Protected Status for Nationals of Honduras

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it will extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for nationals of Honduras through July 5, 2010.   The extension will make those who have already been granted TPS eligible to reregister and maintain their status for an additional 18 months.  There are approximately 70,000 nationals of Honduras (and people having no nationality who last habitually resided in Honduras) who are eligible for reregistration.  TPS does not apply to Honduran nationals who entered the United States after Dec. 30, 1998.

The extension of TPS for Honduras is effective Jan. 6. 2009 and will remain in effect through July 5, 2010.  Nationals of Honduras (and people having no nationality who last habitually resided in Honduras) who have been granted TPS must reregister for the 18-month extension during the 60-day reregistration period beginning on the date the notice is published in the Federal Register.  Honduran TPS beneficiaries are strongly   encouraged to apply as soon as possible following the start of the 60-day reregistration period.  Applications from Honduran TPS beneficiaries will not be accepted prior to the opening of the reregistration period.
