My fiance is from El Salvador and we go through the immigration thing every year. Yes you are supposed to make an application to renew your t.p.s. and work authorization every year. It is best to do it three months before the expiration date on the card, then you'll have to be finger printed again and you should get an answer from u.s.c.i.s. with in a couple of months or so. There is no guarantee that it will be approved or not but if it just expires than you would be considered illegal and your case would be closed. As of July 30th the rates for immigration went up ALOT!!! So if you haven't filled you applications yet this year you will be paying more than you have before.Good Luck!!!

This from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (click on link below for full article).
SUMMARY: Prior to a recent determination by the Secretary of Homeland Security, the designation for El Salvador of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) was set to expire on September 9, 2006. This Notice alerts the public that TPS for El Salvador has been extended for 12 months, until September 9, 2007, and sets 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 an extension of their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) for the additional 12-month period. Re-registration is limited to persons who registered under the initial designation (which was announced on March 9, 2001) or who “late initial registered” and also timely re-registered under each subsequent extension of the designation. In accordance with the original designation, eligible aliens must also have maintained continuous physical presence in the United States since March 9, 2001, and continuous residence in the United States since February 13 , 2001. Certain nationals of El Salvador (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in El Salvador) who have not previously applied for TPS may be eligible to apply under the late initial registration provisions.
Given the large number of Salvadorans affected by this Notice, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recognizes that many re-registrants may not receive an extension sticker or new EAD until after their current EADs expire on September 9, 2006. Accordingly, this Notice automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of El Salvador for 6 months until March 9, 2007, and explains how TPS beneficiaries and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended.
