Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is authorized for nationals of certain countries that have been designated as having conditions that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely. TPS is, as the name suggests, temporary, and does not lead to other forms of lawful status such as Lawful Permanent Residence. TPS merely permits nationals of designated countries to remain and work in the U.S. until such time that they can return to their home countries. Currently, there are 8 TPS countries: Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and Syria.
