by | Jun 24, 2015 | Firm News |

The Department of Homeland Security has designated Nepal for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to assist citizens of Nepal affected by the magnitude 7.8 earthquake on April 25, 2015. The designation will last 18 months, with potential for extension.

The registration period begins today, June 24, 2015, and runs through December 21, 2015.

  2. Have been continuously physically present in the United States since June 24, 2015
  3. Have been continuously residing in the United States since June 24, 2015

Effect of criminal convictions

Applicants with criminal convictions or who may be inadmissible to the United States should speak to an attorney before registering, as certain criminal convictions can make you ineligible for TPS.

You must register no later than December 21, 2015. Those who will be registering are encouraged to file as soon as possible.
