U.S. Designates Venezuela for TPS for 18 Months

Mar 11, 2021

The Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro N. Mayorkas, has designated Venezuela to Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, until September 2022. This new TPS designation for Venezuela allows Venezuelan nationals (and individuals without nationality whose last habitual residence was Venezuela) currently residing in the United States submit initial applications for TPS, provided they meet the eligibility requirements.

The designation is due to extraordinary and temporary conditions existing in Venezuela that prevent nationals from returning to their country safely, including a complex humanitarian crisis, marked by widespread hunger and malnutrition, a growing influence and presence of armed groups. non-state, repression and infrastructure in poor condition. TPS can be extended to a country with conditions that fall within one or more of the three statutory bases for designation: ongoing armed conflict, natural disasters, or extraordinary and temporary conditions.
