TPS for Venezuela Extended for 18 Months; EADs Automatically Extended Through Sept. 9, 2023

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Venezuela through March 10, 2024. Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register Sept. 8, 2022 through Nov. 7, 2022.

Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS has automatically extended the validity of certain Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) issued under the TPS designation for Venezuela through Sept. 9, 2023.

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 Sept. 9, 2023. You must reverify these employees on Form I-9 before they start work on Sept. 10, 2023.
