Salvadorans Provided With Interim Employment Authorization Documents

March 8,  2011

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that some existing Salvadoran Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries will receive interim Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) during the continued processing of their re-registration applications. USCIS mailed approximately 4,500 EADs, to be delivered no later than March 9, 2011, to Salvadorans who have not yet received a final action on their re-registration applications.

Issuance of the interim EADs will allow TPS beneficiaries to continue working while USCIS completes the processing of their re-registration applications. The original expiration date for Salvadoran EADs was Sept. 9, 2010. USCIS automatically extended this validity period to March 9, 2011.

USCIS has already processed over 208,000 Salvadoran re-registration applications for the current TPS extension period ending March 9, 2012. Applicants who received requests from USCIS for additional information should respond promptly within the time period listed in the notice USCIS sent to them.

Any re-registration applicant who receives an interim EAD must still respond to any USCIS requests for additional evidence, including requests for documents, or biometric or fingerprint appointments. Applicants can check the status of their cases by visiting the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov. They can also call the USCIS National Customer Service Center toll-free number at 1-800-375-5283.
