Temporary Protected Status Extended for Ukraine and Sudan Nationals Due to Ongoing Conflicts

The United States has announced an extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for nationals of Ukraine and Sudan until April 19, 2025, in response to the persisting conflicts in these nations. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security revealed this decision, emphasizing its commitment to providing safety and protection to those affected by the crises.

The extension includes a provision allowing eligible Ukrainian and Sudanese nationals studying in the U.S. to maintain their student status, even if they opt for reduced course loads to work more. This measure aims to support their aspirations while ensuring their safety amid challenging circumstances.

For Ukraine, the ongoing military conflict with Russia and resulting humanitarian crisis have led to the continuation of TPS support for affected individuals. Approximately 26,000 current beneficiaries and around 166,700 additional individuals are now eligible for this temporary relief.

Regarding Sudan, the eruption of violent clashes and resulting political instability, violence, and human rights abuses against civilians prompted the extension of TPS. This decision benefits approximately 1,200 current Sudanese TPS beneficiaries and extends eligibility to about 2,750 more individuals.

The Department of Homeland Security’s move to extend TPS underscores its dedication to aiding those facing adversity and instability due to conflict.
