4/21/2022 - Temporary Protected Status for Ukraine

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted today the Federal Register notice on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Ukraine. This notice provides information about how to register for TPS. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas previously announced the 18-month designation of Ukraine for TPS .

The registration process for Ukraine began on April 19, 2022. All individuals who want to request TPS under the designation of Ukraine must file an application.

To be eligible under the Ukraine designation, individuals must demonstrate their continuous residence in the United States since April 11, 2022, and continuous physical presence in the United States since the designation date in the Federal Register notice. Ukrainian nationals currently outside the United States are not eligible for TPS under this designation, and they will not become eligible by relocating to the United States in the coming weeks. Ukrainians are encouraged instead to apply for a visa or other legal pathway at a U.S. consulate abroad.

Individuals applying for TPS under the Ukraine designation must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, during the 18-month initial registration period that runs from April 19, 2022, through Oct. 19, 2023. Ukraine TPS applicants are eligible to file Form I-821 online. When filing a TPS application, applicants can also request an Employment Authorization Document by submitting a completed Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, with their Form I-821. Applicants may also submit Form I-765 online.

Form I-821and Form I-765 can be found on the Department of Homeland Security website at
