*CORRECTION* USCIS Office of Public Engagement: Designation of Syria for Temporary Protected Status

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services sent this bulletin at 03/23/2012 06:11 PM EDT
Dear Stakeholder,

Secretary Napolitano announced today the designation of Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS), based on deteriorating security conditions in Syria. The effective dates for the designation, as well as dates and procedures for the TPS registration process, will be detailed in a Federal Register notice that publishes next week. Applications should not be submitted until the designation becomes effective. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will be hosting a stakeholder engagement next week to discuss the process for filing TPS applications and to address questions and concerns related to the TPS application process. We appreciate your assistance in helping to inform the Syrian community in the U.S. about the TPS designation and look forward to hearing your input during the engagement next week.

An invitation for that engagement will be shared with stakeholders and posted on the www.uscis.gov/outreach web page shortly. For more information about TPS, please visit www.uscis.gov/tps.

Kind Regards,

Office of Public Engagement
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
