TPS Sudan Extended and Redesignated for 18 Months; Certain EADs Automatically Extended Through Oct. 19, 2024

Release Date:
News Item Date:

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Sudan for 18 months, from Oct. 20, 2023, through April 19, 2025.  Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register from Aug. 21, 2023, through Oct. 20, 2023. Sudanese nationals and noncitizens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Sudan may submit an initial registration application under the redesignation for TPS for Sudan and apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).

Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS has automatically extended through Oct. 19, 2024, the validity of certain EADs issued under the TPS designation for Sudan.

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 Oct. 19, 2024.  You must reverify these employees on Form I-9 before they start work on Oct. 20, 2024.

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