U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a correction on May 10, 2022, to its notice on the extension and redesignation of South Sudan for temporary protected status (TPS), which was published on March 3, 2022. Under the “General Employment-Related Information for TPS Applicants and Their Employers” section of the original notice, USCIS corrected “September 17, 2021” to “May 2, 2022” as the eligibility date that should be showing on South Sudan TPS-based employment authorization documents (EADs) to receive an automatic 180-day EAD extension through November 1, 2022.
