Temporary Protected Status

Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a temporary immigration status granted to nationals of certain countries who are already in the United States. During the designated period, these individuals may obtain travel and employment authorization, are not removable from the United States and cannot be detained by the Department of Homeland Security. TPS does not lead to permanent resident status (a green card), but a TPS beneficiary may immigrate permanently under another provision of law if qualified.
