Form I-821 is the application to obtain Temporary Protected Status (TPS). TPS, born out of the Immigration Act of 1990, was created to allow visiting nationals the ability to temporarily extend their stay in the United States if it is unsafe for them to return home. The Department of Homeland Security designates which countries are eligible for TPS and the duration of eligibility. TPS may be designated to a country under circumstances of warfare, environmental disaster, epidemic, or other extreme conditions.
Successful acceptance of Form I-821 qualifies you to apply for a temporary employment via form I-765
In order to qualify for Temporary Protected Status you must meet the following requirements:
*Continuously physically present means you have physically been living within the borders of the United States without leaving for any period of time or for any reason.
**Continuous residence allows for an exception to the continuous physical presence requirement for "brief, casual and innocent departures from the United States."
