TPS for South Sudan Extended and Redesignated for 18 Months; EADs Automatically Extended Through Nov. 3, 2024

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated South Sudan for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from Nov. 4, 2023, through May 3, 2025.  Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register from Sept. 5, 2023, through Nov. 4, 2023. South Sudanese nationals and individuals with no nationality who last habitually resided in South Sudan may submit an initial registration application under the redesignation of South Sudan for TPS and apply for an Employment Authorization Documents (EAD).

Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS has automatically extended through Nov. 3, 2024, the validity of certain EADs issued under the TPS designation for South Sudan.

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. 3, 2024.  You must reverify these employees on Form I-9 before they start work on Nov. 4, 2024.

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