The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) today announced the extension and redesignation of Somalia for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, from March 18, 2023 through Sept. 17, 2024. Individuals who were already residing in the United States as of Jan. 11, 2023, will be eligible for TPS under Somalia’s redesignation if they also meet all other eligibility requirements. Somalis entering the United States after Jan. 11, 2023, are not eligible for TPS under this redesignation.

Contact the Law Offices of Mark A. Urbanski PLLC if you are a citizen of Somalia wishing to apply for or renew your TPS.
