DHS has extended eligibility for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for national of El Salvador for an additional 18 months through March 9, 2018. Nationals of El Salvador who currently have TPS status must re-register by September 6, 2016. Applicants who re-register can also apply for a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD) card with an expiration date of March 9, 2018. In recognition of the fact that most applicants will not receive their new EAD until after the listed expiration date on their current EAD, USCIS is automatically extending current EADs with an expiration date of September 9, 2016 for an additional 6 months, until March 9, 2017.
