Termination of the Designation of Nicaragua for Temporary Protected Status
Document Number: 2017-27141
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-12-15
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
The designation of Nicaragua for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is set to expire on January 5, 2018. After reviewing country conditions and consulting with the appropriate U.S. Government agencies, the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) has determined that conditions in Nicaragua no longer support its designation for TPS and is therefore terminating the TPS designation of Nicaragua. To provide for an orderly transition, this termination is effective on January 5, 2019, which is 12 months following the end of the current designation. Nationals of Nicaragua (and aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Nicaragua) who have been granted TPS and wish to maintain their TPS and receive TPS-based Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) valid through January 5, 2019, must re-register for TPS in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Notice. On January 6, 2019, nationals of Nicaragua (and aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Nicaragua) who have been granted TPS under the Nicaragua designation will no longer have TPS.

Document Number: 2017-27140
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-12-15
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
The designation of Honduras for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is set to expire on January 5, 2018. At least 60 days before the expiration of a country's TPS designation or extension, the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary), after consultation with appropriate Government agencies, must review the conditions in a foreign state designated for TPS to determine whether the conditions for the TPS designation continue to be met. If the Secretary does not make a determination that a foreign state no longer meets the conditions for designation for TPS at least 60 days before the current expiration of the country's TPS designation, the period of designation is automatically extended for 6 additional months (or, in the Secretary's discretion, 12 or 18 months). The Secretary did not make a determination on Honduras's designation by November 6, 2017, the statutory deadline. Accordingly, the TPS designation of Honduras is automatically extended for 6 months, from January 6, 2018 through July 5, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are reminded that, prior to July 5, 2018, the Secretary will review the conditions in Honduras and decide whether extension, redesignation, or termination is warranted in accordance with the TPS statute. During this period, beneficiaries are encouraged to prepare for their return to Honduras in the event Honduras's designation is not extended again and if they have no other lawful basis for remaining in the United States, including requesting updated travel documents from the Government of Honduras.
