Salvadorans living in the United States who qualify for the Temporary Protection Status (TPS) have until September 10 to submit their registration for said immigration benefit. The TPS extension is from September 10, 2023, to March 9, 2025.
The Salvadoran Ministry of Foreign Affairs has made available its consular network in the United States so that Temporary Protection Status (TPS) beneficiaries can obtain guidance on the registration process.
Salvadoran consulate offices in the United States have been instructed to stay open during the weekend to support Salvadorans who, due to their work, do not have time to come during the week to comply with the requirement to fill out the TPS documents.
“September 10 is the last day to re-register for TPS. Our consular network is supporting Salvadorans in this process free of charge. Schedule your visit through the Virtual Consulate: 1-888-301-1130”, stressed the Vice Minister of Diaspora and Human Mobility.
Vice Minister Cindy Mariella Portal also highlighted that Salvadorans could schedule or visit through the Virtual Consulate at 1-888-301-1130.
The documents required for re-registration are an original and a copy of the last employment authorization document, two passport-size photographs, the last approval letter issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, and an original passport and a copy.
Also, a copy of the Advance Parole or travel authorization, a copy of forms 1-94, a copy of past forms, a check addressed to the Department of Homeland Security, form 1-765, and a check for $410.
El Diario de Hoy Newspaper reported on August 29 that there was a concern over low re-registration of Salvadorans for the TPS extension. “Organizations call on compatriots to carry out the process, which this year will be by request and not automatically,” noted the news report.
