An applicant for late initial registration must file an application for late registration within 60 days of the expiration or termination of the abovedescribed conditions. 8 CFR 244.2(g). All late initial registration applications for TPS pursuant to the TPS extension of Liberia should be submitted to the USCIS lockbox address listed above. What Happens When This Extension of TPS Expires on October 1, 2006? At least 60 days before this extension of the TPS designation for Liberia expires on October 1, 2006, the Secretary of Homeland Security, after consultation with appropriate agencies of the Government, will review conditions in Liberia and determine whether the conditions for this TPS designation continue to be met at that time, or whether the TPS designation should be terminated. 8 U.S.C. 1254a(b)(3). Notice of that determination, including the basis for the determination, will be published in the Federal Register. Notice of Extension of Designation of TPS for Liberia By the authority vested in the Secretary of Homeland Security under sections 244(b)(3)(A) and (b)(3)(C) of the Act, DHS has determined, after consultation with the appropriate Government agencies, that the conditions that prompted designation of Liberia for TPS continue to be met. Accordingly, DHS orders as follows: (1) The designation of Liberia under section 244(b)(1)(C) of the Act is extended for an additional 12-month period from October 1, 2005, to October 1, 2006. 8 U.S.C. 1254a(b)(3)(C). (2) There are approximately 3,792 nationals of Liberia (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia) who have been granted TPS and who are eligible for re-registration. (3) To maintain TPS, a national of Liberia (or an alien having no nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia) who was granted TPS during the current designation must re-register VerDate jul<14>2003 18:02 Aug 15, 2005 Jkt 205001 for TPS during the 60-day re-registration period from August 16, 2005 until October 17, 2005. (4) To re-register, the alien must file the following: (1) Form I–821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, without fee; (2) Form I–765, Application for Employment Authorization; and (3) a biometric services fee of $70 if the alien is age 14 or older, or if the alien is under age 14 and requesting an EAD. Applications submitted without the required fees will be returned to the applicant. If the alien requests an EAD, he or she must submit $175 or a properly documented fee waiver request, pursuant to 8 CFR 244.20, with the Form I–765. An alien who does not request employment authorization must still file Form I–765 along with Form I–821, but he or she is not required to submit the fee or a fee waiver request for filing Form I–765. Failure to re-register without good cause will result in the withdrawal of TPS. 8 U.S.C. 1254a(c)(3)(C). Aliens who have previously registered for TPS but whose applications remain pending should follow these instructions to renew temporary treatment benefits. Some persons who had not previously applied for TPS may be eligible for late initial registration under 8 CFR 244.2. (5) At least 60 days before this extension ends on October 1, 2006, the Secretary of Homeland Security, after consultation with appropriate agencies of the Government, will review the designation of Liberia for TPS and determine whether the conditions for designation continue to be met. 8 U.S.C. 1254a(b)(3)(A). Notice of that determination, including the basis for the determination, will be published in the Federal Register. Id. (6) Information concerning the extension of designation of Liberia for TPS will be available at local USCIS offices upon publication of this Notice and on the USCIS Web site at http:// www.uscis.gov.
