Secretary Napolitano announced today
the designation of Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS), based on
deteriorating security conditions in Syria. The effective dates for the
designation, as well as dates and procedures for the TPS registration
process, will be detailed in a Federal Register notice that publishes
next week. Applications should not be submitted until the designation
becomes effective. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
will be hosting a stakeholder engagement next week to discuss the
process for filing TPS applications and to address questions and
concerns related to the TPS application process. We appreciate your
assistance in helping to inform the Syrian community in the U.S. about
the TPS designation and look forward to hearing your input during the
engagement next week.
An invitation for that engagement will be shared with stakeholders and posted on the www.uscis.gov/outreach web page shortly. For more information about TPS, please visit www.uscis.gov/tps.
