I-821, Application for temporary protected status
As of November 29th, all TPS applicants may file Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, and Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, online.
Before, the option to file Form I-821 online was only available to initial TPS applicants from certain countries.
First-time TPS applicants and TPS beneficiaries that are re-registering can apply online.
To request an Employment Authorization Document, applicants must submit a completed Form I-765 with their Form I-821, or may submit Form I-765 separately.
USCIS now offers the online filing option for all TPS applicants to continue making the process of applying for immigration benefits more effective.
