Ethiopian Nationals in the United States Can Now Submit Their Applications For Temporary Protected Status

DHS Designates Ethiopia for Temporary Protected Status for 18 Months

Release Date: December 19, 2022

United States of America: After an announcement made by the Department of Homeland Security designating Ethiopia for Temporary Protected Status (“TPS”) for 18 months for Ethiopian nationals currently residing in the United States, the Department of Homeland Security posted the federal register notice on December 9, 2022, allowing certain Ethiopians in the United States to begin submitting their applications for temporary protected status and advance parole travel documents starting December 12, 2022.

This news event is a major move for Yemi Getachew Immigration Law Office, P.C., on its mission to assist the Ethiopian community. Our office has helped clients from different countries all around the world, including Africa, the Middle East, Central and South America, Europe, Asia, Canada, Australia, and others  with immigration issues they are facing.

“With this important regulation, Ethiopian nationals who have been continuously physically present in the United States since October 20, 2022, through December 12, 2022, can now file an application for temporary protected status and advance parole. Those who attempt to travel to the United States after October 20, 2022, will not be eligible for temporary protected status,” says Medya Ansari, Esq., Partner at Yemi Getachew Immigration Law Office. “This would allow Ethiopian citizens in the United States to obtain an employment authorization and travel document.”

This news comes in the wake of recent conflicts due to the civil war and ethnic clashes in Ethiopia. Our office’s mission is to ensure the Ethiopian community’s safety through initiatives that our Immigration Law firm in San Jose, California, has been taking, including:

  • Opening communications  with the U.S. Congressional Representatives to help bring humanitarian assistance to the people in Ethiopia
  • Helping more than hundreds of Ethiopians obtain asylum in Immigration Courts or USCIS
  • Reunite Ethiopians with their families through family-based petitions

In addition, our firm has now started helping Ethiopians with TPS applications. TPS would significantly impact the Ethiopian community in the U.S., especially those who had to escape persecution by crossing borders and those without employment authorization or who cannot obtain advance parole to travel. Although TPS is not enough to safeguard Ethiopians in the U.S., given the civil war in Ethiopia because it is a temporary protection and not a permanent status, it is a positive step taken by the current administration towards protecting the citizens of Ethiopia.

Am I Eligible For TPS?: TPS can be granted to an individual who is a national of a designated country, has filed the application during a specified registration period, and has been continuously physically present in the U.S. since the designated date. Applicants must prove they were already in the U.S. on the designation date. The designation date for Ethiopia is October 20, 2022, and is for 18 months that the Department of Homeland Security can extend. Successful applicants may receive both employment authorization and advance parole travel documents.
