TPS for Burma (Myanmar) Extended and Redesignated for 18 Months; Certain EADs Automatically Extended Through May 25, 2025

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated Burma for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from May 26, 2024, through Nov. 25, 2025. Nationals of Burma 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). Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register and may apply for a new EAD.

Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration and EAD renewal applications, USCIS has automatically extended through May 25, 2025, the validity of certain EADs with Card Expires dates of May 25, 2024, or Nov. 25, 2022, issued under the TPS designation for Burma. If we approve an individual’s application for an EAD related to their TPS, we will issue them an EAD with a Card Expires date of Nov. 25, 2025.

Creating an E-Verify Case

After 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 May 25, 2025. You must reverify these employees on Form I-9 before they start work on May 26, 2025.
