The Secretary of Homeland Security may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that, temporarily, prevent the country's nationals from returning home, safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately, due to war, disaster, etc.
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may grant Temporary Protected Status to eligible nationals of certain countries (or parts of countries), who are already in the United States. Eligible individuals without nationality who last resided in the designated country may also be granted TPS.
