Termination of the Designation of Nepal for Temporary Protected Status

AGENCY: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

ACTION: Notice.

 

SUMMARY: The designation of Nepal for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is set to expire on June 24, 2018. After reviewing country conditions and consulting with appropriate U.S. Government agencies, the Secretary of Homeland Security has determined that conditions in Nepal no longer support its designation for TPS and that termination of the TPS designation of Nepal is required pursuant to statute. To provide time for an orderly transition, the Secretary is terminating the designation effective on June 24, 2019, which is 12 months following the end of the current designation. Nationals of Nepal (and aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Nepal) who have been granted TPS and wish to maintain their TPS and receive TPS-based Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) valid through June 24, 2019, must re-register for TPS in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Notice. After June 24, 2019, nationals of Nepal (and aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Nepal) who have been granted TPS under the Nepal designation will no longer have TPS.

DATES: The designation of Nepal for TPS is terminated effective at 11:59 p.m., local time, on June 24, 2019. The 60-day re-registration period runs from May 22, 2018 through July 23, 2018. (NOTE: It is important for re-registrants to timely re-register during this 60-day period.)
