The Department of Homeland Security has redesignated Sudan and South Sudan for temporary protected status (TPS) and extended their existing TPS designations from May 3, 2013, through November 2, 2014. Those who already have TPS must re-register during the 60-day re-registration period that began on January 9, 2013, and runs through March 11, 2013. Those who do not have TPS may apply during a six-month registration period that began on January 9, 2013, and runs through July 8, 2013.
