Form I-821 | WHY OUR SERVICES ARE THE BEST CHOICE

This is the official form you should file wth United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)  to request or re-register individual Temporary Protected Status (TPS) if you are an eligible person from a country that has been designated for TPS.

To see if you meet this criteria, go to the closest U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office for countries currently designated for TPS and for information pertaining to re-registration periods, or visit the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov/tps.

If you qualify for TPS, you may also apply for a work permit by filing a completed Form I-765, Request for Employment Authorization, with this form.

Pass eligibility quiz Form I-821

To qualify for TPS, you must be legally admissible to the United States. However, USCIS is authorized to grant waivers in certain cases. You can find more information and learn whether you are eligible for a waiver by reviewing the “What Waivers are Available for TPS portion of the Instructions for Form I-821.

If you are re-registering for TPS and you previously received a waiver in connection with a TPS application, there is no need to seek another waiver for the same action, incident, or circumstance. For example, if on a prior TPS application, you received a waiver of the health ground of inadmissibility because you had a contagious illness or condition that was treated, you do not need to apply for another waiver for that same illness or condition. However, you must file for a new waiver if you have contracted another contagious illness for which one is required.

Finally, you cannot file Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status for your family members. Instead, each person seeking TPS must qualify and apply for him or herself on a separate Form I-821.

Document Checklist Form I-821

There is no need to provide original documents with this application unless USCIS asks you to provide them along with the copies you provide.

If you are making an initial request for TPS (if you have not applied before), you must submit copes of certain documents proving: that you are from a country designated for TPS (or that you have no national identity but that you lived a country designated for TPS immediately prior to coming to the United States); the date you entered the United States; and your U.S. residence.

If you are filing this application for re-registration (as specified in Part 1., Item Number 1.b., of Form I-821), there is no need to submit copies of any documents. However, USCIS may request additional information and/or documentation depending on the circumstances of your case.

If you are submitting a first-time re-registration with USCIS following an Immigration Judge or Board of Immigration Appeals decision granting your request for TPS  you should include a copy of that decision order with your Form I-821. This helps USCIS in confirm your official request has been granted and facilitates the processing of your application.

For detailed information about acceptable supporting documents, see the Instructions for Form I-821.

Detailed Filing instructions Form I-821

First-time TPS applicants must submit a $50 fee for Form I-821. However, there is no Form I-821 fee for re-registration. If you are 14 or older, you must also pay the $85 fee for biometric services.

You may have to pay different fees depending on the specific circumstances of your case. To learn more, visit the Form I-821 page on the USCIS website.

Acceptable forms of payment are money orders, personal checks, or cashier’s checks.  If you pay by check, you must make your check payable to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Service centers cannot process credit card payments. However, if you are filing at a USCIS Lockbox facility, you may also pay by credit card using Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions.

I got my citizenship last year, I decided to bring my parents in the US. I was looking for a proper site quite for a long time and then saw Usimmigrationforms.com. The government fees are so expensive for my parent’s green card so I couldn’t afford a lawyer. I was so surprised how easy and cheap the process can be

Hi, I am from Ukraine and my name is Elena. Many know that we have problems in our country, economical, political and so on. I am 24 years old and was really afraid staying here, so started looking for all possible variants of immigration. I am an English teacher and was dreaming for a long time to move to the USA. With j this service I found it to be really simple and cheap. Yes, prices are quite affordable in comparison with other online services. I had no problems with filling the forms. Everything is so understandable and clear. Now I know that everything is ready and I am preparing for a flight over the ocean to seek asylum in the US.
