Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible
nationals of Honduras for an additional 18 months, effective Jan. 6, 2015, through July 5, 2016.
Current TPS Honduras beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS must re-register during the 60-day
re-registration period that runs from Oct. 16, 2014 through Dec. 15, 2014. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
Services (USCIS) encourages beneficiaries to re-register as soon as possible once the 60-day re-registration
period begins. USCIS will not accept applications before Oct. 16, 2014.
The 18-month extension also allows TPS re-registrants to apply for a new Employment Authorization
Document (EAD). Eligible TPS Honduras beneficiaries (or persons without nationality who last habitually
resided in Honduras) who re-register during the 60-day period and request a new EAD will receive one with
an expiration date of July 5, 2016.
To re-register, current TPS beneficiaries must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status.
Re-registrants do not need to pay the Form I-821 application fee, but they must submit the biometric services
fee (or a fee-waiver request) if they are age 14 or older. All TPS re-registrants must also submit Form I-765,
Application for Employment Authorization. TPS re-registrants requesting an EAD must submit the Form I-765
application fee or a fee-waiver request. If the re-registrant does not want an EAD, no application fee is
Applicants may request that USCIS waive the Form I-765 application fee or biometrics fee based on an
inability to pay by filing Form I-912, Request for Fee Waiver, or by submitting a written request. Fee-waiver
requests must be accompanied by supporting documentation. USCIS will reject the TPS application of any
applicant who fails to submit the required filing fees or a properly documented fee-waiver request.
