Temporary Protected Status

The United States occasionally invites foreign born people from war-ravaged or storm-tossed countries to enjoy Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in the United States. TPS recipients are given the right to live in the United States as long as the TPS period is active. Countries currently under TPS include El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, Somalia, South, Sudan, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. Countries formerly under TPS include Kuwait, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Rwanda,  Burundi, Serbia, Kosovo, Province of Serbia, Angola, Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. At times TPS is terminated, at which time the foreign born visitors must return home. Normally the TPS visitors are not eligible for Legal Permanent Residence. But some may apply for various reasons.
