USCIS Reminds Eligible Salvadorans to Re-register for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) by September 1, 2006

WASHINGTON – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today
reminded eligible Salvadorans to re-register for the 12-month extension
of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) by September 1, 2006. Under this
extension, those who have already been granted TPS are eligible to
remain and work in the United States for an additional 12 months until
September 9, 2007. Current employment authorization documents (EADs)
have also been automatically extended until March 9, 2007. There are
approximately 225,000 nationals of El Salvador (or aliens having no
nationality who last habitually resided in El Salvador) who are
eligible for re-registration. To date, USCIS has received approximately
56,000 TPS re-registration applications from Salvadoran registrants.

More information can be obtained from the USCIS National Customer
Service Center toll-free number: 1-800-375-5283. TPS forms are
available from the toll-free USCIS Forms line, 1-800-870-3676, or from
the USCIS Web site: www.uscis.gov.
