Temporary Protected Status (TPS) has been extended for Burundi, Sierra Leone and Sudan. The TPS statute and INS regulations offer eligible aliens from designated countries a temporary stay of removal and employment authorization for the designated TPS period and for any extensions. TPS does not lead to permanent resident status. When a TPS designation ends, beneficiaries revert to the immigration status they had prior to TPS (unless that benefit has expired or been terminated) or to any other status they may have been granted while in TPS. The INS maintains a table of countries whose nationals are eligible for TPS.
The California Service Center processing times have been updated.
