The U.S. government has issued Temporary Protected Status TPS for Ebola stricken countries – Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, effective from November 21, 2014 through May 21, 2016. The registration period began on November 21, 2014, and ends on May 20, 2015.
Temporary Protected Status TPS for Ebola is issued to individuals in the U.S. who are natives or citizens of a designated country (in this case, Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone) where conditions in the country are unsafe and that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.
To be eligible for TPS, you must:
- Be a national of a country designated for TPS, or a person without nationality who last habitually resided in the designated country;
- File during the open initial registration or re-registration period, or you meet the requirements for late initial filing during any extension of your country’s TPS designation
- Have been continuously physically present (CPP) in the United States since the effective date of the most recent designation date of your country; and
- Have been continuously residing (CR) in the United States since the date specified for your country.
Temporary Protected Status TPS for Ebola is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status or give any other immigration status. If granted Temporary Protected Status TPS for Ebola, you are issued an employment authorization card enabling you to legally work in the U.S.
