Information on EADs for TPS Honduras

USCIS has automatically extended the validity of employment authorization cards for individuals with Temporary Protected Status from Honduras.

TPS Honduras EADs have been automatically extended through January 1, 2019. If your employee has an Employment Authorization Document (Form I-766, often referred to as an “EAD”) with an original expiration date of July 5, 2018 and containing the category code “A-12” or “C-19,” this EAD is automatically extended and the employee may continue to work without a new one (and without a receipt notice) through the end of the automatic extension period, January 1, 2019.

This automatic extension also covers individuals whose EADs contain the category code “A-12” or “C-19” and a January 5, 2018 expiration date, if those individuals applied for a new EAD during the last reregistration period and have not yet received their new EADs. These individuals may show their EAD indicating a January 5, 2018 expiration date and their EAD application receipt (Notice of Action, Form I797C) that notes the application was received on or after December 15, 2017, as proof of continued employment authorization through January 1, 2019. More information on when an employee can choose to show their EAD and I-797C is available in this USCIS Fact Sheet.
