Alejandro N. Mayorkas, the secretary of homeland security, has extended Venezuela’s Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for another 18 months. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas stated, ” As one of my first actions as Secretary, I designated Venezuela for TPS,”
After careful consideration, I am extending that designation today in consultation with the Secretary of State. This action is one of many ways the Biden administration is providing humanitarian support to Venezuelans at home and abroad, together with our regional partners.
We will continue to work with our international partners to address regional migration challenges while ensuring our borders remain secure.” The TPS extension for Venezuela will be put into from September 10, 2022, through March 10, 2024.
Only beneficiaries under the existing designation of Venezuela and who were already inhabited in the United States till March 8, 2021, are eligible to re-register for the status under the 18-month extension. Venezuelans who arrived in the country after March 8, 2021, do not qualify for the status extension.
Approximately an estimated 343,000 individuals are eligible for TPS under the existing designation of Venezuela. It can be ascertained that this action is one of many actions the Biden administration has taken in order to provide humanitarian support to Venezuelans at home and abroad, together with the regional partners.
