All Work Permits or Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) that had previously been extended by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for El Salvador designation that were expiring on Sept. 9, 2016, were made valid through March 9, 2017, that was a 6-month extension. DHS has just automatically extended the validity of those previously extended work permits for an additional 6 months, through Sept. 9, 2017, to avoid gaps in work authorization.

Find more details on these automatically extended EADs for beneficiaries of TPS for El Salvador in the Federal Register. Additional information on TPS for El Salvador is available here. Employers verifying eligible El Salvadorians’ work permits or reverifying the employment eligibility of employees who are TPS beneficiaries from El Salvador should refer to the Temporary Protected Status page on I-9 Central.
