Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 04, 2012
United for a Free Syria (UFS) invites those who are interested to attend the upcoming U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) teleconference session, during which the Office of Public Engagement will be sharing details and accepting questions related to the designation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to Syrian nationals. The session on TPS for Syria will take place on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 from 1:00pm to 2:30pm (Eastern).
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano designated Syria for TPS on March 29, 2012 for eighteen months. Eligible Syrian nationals, and persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Syria, who wish to obtain TPS must apply during the 180-day registration period that began March 29, 2012 and ends on September 25, 2012. During this engagement, USCIS will provide background information on TPS and explain who is eligible. USCIS subject matter experts will be available to answer stakeholder questions and will also address additional questions received since the previous TPS Syria engagement on March 29, 2012.
