Homeland Security designated Ukraine for Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
DHS has designated Ukraine for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Ukrainians in the United States on March 1, 2022 can apply for temporary protection from deportation and for employment authorization for 18 months. This only helps Ukrainians who were here on March 1, 2022. It will not help Ukrainians trying to come to the USA now. TPS will last for 18 months. The application period will start when the notice is published in the Federal Register.
