On March 29, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security designated the Syrian Arab Republic (“Syria”) for Temporary Protected Status (“TPS”) after finding that there are “extraordinary and temporary conditions in Syria that prevent Syrian nationals from returning in safety, and that permitting such aliens to remain temporarily in the United States would not be contrary to the national interest of the United States.” Under the terms of the Notice, eligible Syrian nationals who have both continuously resided in and who have been continuously physically present in the United States since March 29, 2012 are eligible to apply for TPS.
