Yesterday, 29 March 2012, the Dept. of Homeland Security announced that Syrians in the US can apply for the special Temporary Protected Status (“TPS”) visas and work cards. Syrians MUST register by 30 Sept. 2012! TPS is good for 18 months and is generally renewable until the crisis situation in Syria is over. Go to www.uscis.gov/tps for details or contact my office at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.naplesfloridalawgroup.com.
Registration gives Syrians legal status in the US, the right to work and get a Social Security Card, the right to travel internationally without loosing the TPS status, and, in most cases, a local drivers license.
