On September 8, 2023, USCIS announced that individuals who have Temporary Protected Status (TPS) (or a pending application) are now eligible to extend their Employment Authorization Document (EAD) for up to 540 days past their EAD card expiration date. For I-9 purposes, the TPS beneficiary can present their expired EAD card and their I-765 Receipt Notice showing that they timely filed an EAD renewal application before October 26, 2023.

TPS is a designation that allows nationals from specific countries to stay in the United States for up to 18 months while their home country has a temporary emergency condition.
