DHS published a notice in the Federal Register of the termination of Nicaragua’s designation for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and also of the six-month extension of Honduras’ TPS designation. Nicaragua’s current TPS designation will expire on January 5, 2018, and there will be a 12-month transition period before it terminates on January 5, 2019. Honduras’ TPS designation was automatically extended for six months through July 5, 2018, during which time DHS will decide whether to extend it, redesignate, or terminate it. The 60-day re-registration period for both Nicaraguan and Honduran TPS beneficiaries will run from December 15, 2017, through February 13, 2018.
