El Salvador TPS Extended

Download: Federal Register Notice (8/21/2007)

The designation of El Salvador for temporary protected status (TPS) has been extended for 18 months to March 9, 2009, from its current expiration date of September 9, 2007.

The notice automatically extends the validity of employment authorization documents (EADs) issued under the TPS designation for six months, through March 9, 2008, and explains how TPS beneficiaries and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended. New EADs with the March 9, 2009, expiration date will be issued to eligible TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for an EAD.

The 60-day re-registration period began August 21, 2007, and will remain in effect until October 22, 2007. To facilitate processing of applications, applicants are strongly encouraged to file as soon as possible after the start of the 60-day re-registration period.
