EAD Validity Extended for Six Months for Temporary Protected Status El Salvador

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will automatically extend the validity of Employment Authorization Document (EAD) cards issued under Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for El Salvador. The automatic extension will be for 6 months, through Sept. 9, 2017.

Those who have an EAD issued under the TPS designation for El Salvador that expired Sept. 9, 2016 will automatically have the validity of the EAD extended until Sept. 7, 2017. This is because on July 8, 2016, DHS announced that it would extend EADs issued under TPS for El Salvador for 18 months, to March 9, 2017.

To prove continued valid work authorization, the employee can present the TPS-related EAD as well as a copy of the Federal Register notice announcing the automatic extension.
