Notice of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has designated Cameroon for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, effective June 7, 2022, through December 7, 2023.

TPS is where the government allows someone from a certain country to remain in the United States as their country is a mess and dangerous to return to. It is a temporary designation, but indefinite renewal.

This designation allows Cameroonian nationals (and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Cameroon) who have continuously resided in the United States since April 14, 2022, and who have been physically present continuously in the United States since June 7, 2022, to apply for TPS. DATES: Designation of Cameroon for TPS: The 18-month designation of Cameroon for TPS is effective on June 7, 2022, and will remain in effect for 18 months, through December 7, 2023. Registration: The registration period for individuals to submit TPS applications begins June 7, 2022 and will remain in effect through December 7, 2023. Afghanistan and Ukraine also recently received TPS designation to remain in the United States. While in TPS status, one may seek other ways to gain a more permanent standing in the U.S. through employment, school, sponsorship, National Interest Waiver, and family sponsorship to name a few ways.
