Need for Correction

    On January 11, 2012, DHS published a notice in the Federal Register 
at 77 FR 1710, extending the designation of El Salvador for TPS and 
setting forth procedures for nationals of El Salvador (or aliens having 
no nationality who last habitually resided in El Salvador) with TPS to 
re-register and to apply for their new or renewed Employment 
Authorization Documents (EADs) (Forms I-766) with USCIS. The notice 
incorrectly stated the 60-day re-registration period would run from 
January 9, 2012 through March 9, 2012.
    DHS is issuing this correction notice to extend the re-registration 
period through Monday, March 12, 2012. DHS will retain the January 9, 
2012 start date for the re-registration period to avoid confusion. DHS 
will accept re-registration applications submitted from January 9, 2012 
through March 12, 2012, provided they meet all filing and fee 
requirements as stated in the January 11, 2012 notice.
    Specifically, DHS replaces the March 9, 2012 date with a new date, 
March 12, 2012, in the January 11, 2012 notice, within the section 
titled ``DATES,'' where the March 9, 2012 date appears in the second 
sentence relating to the re-registration period.
