Syria Given Temporary Protected Status

Due to the upheaval in Syria, the U.S. Government has designated it a temporary protected status ("TPS") country. Nationals of Syria may apply for TPS and work authorization. TPS allows a person the remain in the United States, but it does not lead to permanent residency status.

Syrians may apply for TPS up until September 25, 2012. TPS will remain in effect until September 30, 2013, unless extended by the United States.

For more information, see the USCIS website.
