TPS Burma (Myanmar) Extended and Redesignated for 18 Months; EADs Automatically Extended Through Nov. 25, 2023

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated Burma for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) through May 25, 2024.  Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register starting Sept. 27, 2022, through Nov. 26, 2022. Burmese nationals and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Burma may submit an initial registration application under the redesignation of Burma for TPS and apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).

Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS has automatically extended through Nov. 25, 2023, the validity of certain EADs issued under the TPS designation for Burma.

Creating an E-Verify Case

Once a new employee has completed Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, create a case in E-Verify for this employee. Enter the EAD document number you entered on Form I-9, as well as the automatically extended date of Nov. 25, 2023.  You must reverify these employees on Form I-9 before they start work on Nov. 26, 2023.

Find more details about this extension on the TPS designation for Burma page and instructions for completing Form I-9 on the I-9 Central TPS page.
