Today, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced the designation of Nepal for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months as a result of the devastating magnitude 7.8 earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25, 2015 and subsequent aftershocks. In order to qualify, Nepalese nationals must have been in the United States as of June 24, 2015 and apply with United States Citizenship Immigration Services within the next 180 days, which would be December 21, 2015.  The Applicants for TPS may also apply for Employment Authorization Card (EAD).  Individuals with TPS status may not be removed from the United States.  The designation for TPS will remain in effect until December 24, 2016, at which time Department of Homeland Security will make a decision whether to redesignate or extend the current designation. Also, if someone has TPS status, they can also request to travel for limited time. However, there are risks associated with it so one should consult with the immigration lawyer.
