Type: Notice
Date: 2017-10-11
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
The designation of Sudan for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is set to expire on November 2, 2017. After reviewing country conditions and consulting with the appropriate U.S. Government agencies, the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) has determined that conditions in Sudan have sufficiently improved for TPS purposes and no longer support a designation for TPS.

To provide for an orderly transition, this termination is effective November 2, 2018, twelve months following the end of the current designation. Nationals of Sudan (and aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Sudan) who have been granted TPS and wish to maintain their TPS and have their current TPS- based Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) extended through November 2, 2018, should re-register for TPS in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Notice. On November 3, 2018, nationals of Sudan (and aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Sudan) who have been granted TPS under the Sudan designation will no longer have TPS.
