TPS Renewed for Nicaragua


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, through Jan. 5, 2012, to eligible nationals of Nicaragua and people having no nationality who last habitually resided in Nicaragua.  This extension does not apply to Nicaraguans who entered the United States after Dec. 30, 1998. Certain nationals of Nicaragua who have not previously applied for TPS may be able to register under the late initial registration provisions. Further details on this extension of TPS for Nicaragua appear in the Federal Register Notice that announces this extension.
