DHS Announces Extension of TPS for Syria

Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security announced that Syrians with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) status will be eligible to re-register for an extension of status for 18 months, through 9/30/19.

The decision to extend TPS for Syria was made after a review of the conditions upon which the country’s designation is based, which was ongoing armed conflict and extraordinary and temporary conditions, as well as an assessment of whether those conditions continue to exist as required by statute. Following careful consideration of available information, including recommendations received as part of an inter-agency consultation process, the Secretary determined that the conditions supporting Syria’s designation for TPS continue to exist. Thus, under the applicable statute, the current TPS designation must be extended.

There are approximately 7,000 Syrian TPS beneficiaries. Further details about this extension will appear in a Federal Register notice.
