    Temporary Protected Status

    What is TPS?

    A. TPS is a temporary immigration status granted to eligible nationals of certain countries (or persons without nationality who last habitually resided in the country) designated by the Secretary of Homeland Security. TPS is granted to nationals from countries that are experiencing temporary negative conditions such as armed conflict or environmental disasters that make it difficult for the nationals to return in safety, or for the countries to accept their return. See Immigration and Nationality Act(INA), § 244. TPS beneficiaries who remain qualified for the benefit are not subject to removal from the United States and are eligible for work authorization for the designated TPS period and for any extensions of the designation.
