The Biden Administration has provided additional information about how to register for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Afghan nationals in the United States. TPS status will allow qualified Afghan nationals to live and work in the U.S. for up to 18 months, provided they have resided in the U.S. continuously since March 15, 2022 and have been physically present in the U.S. since May 20, 2022.

The TPS registration period for Afghanistan will run from May 20, 2022 through November 20, 2023. Applicants seeking to apply for TPS designation must proactively file Form I-821. Those wishing to apply for employment authorization must also file Form I-765. Both forms can be filed online.
