The registration deadline for Nepalese nationals (and habitual residents) to seek Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in the United States is fast approaching – December 21, 2015. 

As previously discussed, Temporary Protected Status designation was granted to Nepali nationals and residents on June 24, 2015, in the wake of the earthquake of April 25, 2015.  All eligible Nepali nationals and residents seeking TPS must register by December 21 in order to receive the benefits of TPS, which include work authorization and temporary relief from removal.

If you are a Nepali national or resident who has been in the United States  on, or before, June 24, 2015, you may be eligible for TPS. Please contact our office for further information and in order to determine eligibility – you must still meet the requirements for TPS. But you may apply even if you have an order of deportation, are in removal proceedings, or are out of status.
