Can someone with TPS travel outside the US?

Travel. If you have TPS and want to travel outside of the US, you must apply for travel authorisation. This document grants you authorization to depart the United States and return within a certain time frame. Form I-131, Application for Travel Document, is required to apply for advance parole. You can also request permission to travel by emailing your request to [email protected] Requests should include why travel is necessary, how long you will be gone, and which country you will be visiting.

TPS does not grant permanent residency status or a work permit. If you are able to secure both, you may be able to apply for special permission to stay in the United States permanently. Such cases must be approved by the Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs.

The decision on whether to grant you authorization to travel is up to the government agency that issued your TPS notice. That means if you were notified that your temporary protection was going to expire at a future date, a new application would need to be submitted as well as a new visa interview. The new approval could then be effective beginning with the date that you were originally granted temporary protection status.

In general, if you have a valid passport and do not intend to stay longer than the authorized period, you should be able to obtain authorization to travel. However, no one can predict what might happen with the processing of your case after it has been sent to Washington.

Can I travel with TPS?

Yes, however before flying outside the United States under TPS, you must first obtain clearance from US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Fill out and submit Form I-131, Application for Travel Document, to request this authorisation. You will be issued an advance parole travel document after your application has been approved. You are then eligible to travel to any country that does not impose visa requirements for American citizens.

You can also apply for an extension of your stay if you cannot leave the country within the mandatory departure date. You must do this even if you already have a valid passport and visa. The new expiration date on your TPS document will be the new arrival date on your extension.

If you remain in the United States after your initial permission period has ended, you may be able to reapply for TPS. To do so, you must file a new I-131 form and include a $50 fee. Your previous approval is valid for another six months unless you file for an extension, which would allow you to remain in the country up to a year.

In addition to the requirements for other non-immigrant categories, if your presence in the United States is deemed necessary by the Secretary of Homeland Security, you are required to maintain a valid TPS document during your employment authorization period. If this requirement appears to conflict with your employer's policy, you should maintain your status as long as you can demonstrate that you are needed in the United States.

Can a conditional permanent resident travel outside the US?

If you are a lawful permanent resident or conditional permanent resident in the United States and want to go outside the country, you can apply for a re-entry permission, refugee travel document, or advance parole travel document (including parole into the U.S. for humanitarian reasons). You must show that you have a valid reason for leaving the country and that you will be able to return. If approved, the document allows you to travel to any of the countries that issue passports to regularize your stay.

You can only use your re-entry permit to return to the United States if:

You started the application process while you were still eligible for citizenship;

You were given authorization to enter the U.S. as a conditional permanent resident;

You were given authorization to enter the U.S. as a permanent resident; and

Your immigration status has not been revoked.

A conditional permanent resident can also apply for a re-entry permit. However, this permit can be applied for only once during their stay as a conditional permanent resident. If the condition is not met, the person's file will be sent to the removal office where they will be ordered removed from the United States.

The decision on whether to grant you a re-entry permit will be made by an officer of the border agency.

Can you travel with a work permit card in the US?

If you receive this card, you will be able to go overseas and return to the United States. When you arrive at a port of entry, show the card to a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer to obtain parole. He or she will then allow you into the country while letting your employer know that you have arrived safely.

You can also use your work permit card to travel between certain cities within the United States. You must present the card to enter any city on its list of eligible places. If you are not allowed into a particular city, find out why. Perhaps there is a local policy against allowing foreign workers to enter the city without a visa. If this is the case, you may want to look for another place to live.

When traveling with a work permit card, it is important to understand what type of document you are permitted to enter America's cities and towns. For example, most cities in California allow work permits to be used as proof of authorization to reside there. However, some cities in California may have specific requirements for living quarters so make sure to check with local officials before entering a city through its main entrance with a group of people who may not all be authorized to be there.
