Nepal graduates from US\' TPS status

Kathmandu, April 27 (RSS)
After assessing that the overall humanitarian situation in Nepal has stabilized since the devastating earthquake of April 2015, the U.S. Government has determined that Nepal is ready to graduate from its Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen announced her decision to conclude Temporary Protected Status designation for Nepal on April 26, 2018. TPS for Nepal will now expire on June 24, 2019, the Embassy of the United States of America stated in a press release here today.
Temporary Protected Status is a temporary immigration status granted to eligible nationals of a country designated due to ongoing armed conflict, environmental disaster, or other extraordinary and temporary conditions. On June 24, 2015, the Department of Homeland Security of the United States announced the designation of Temporary Protected Status for Nepalis temporarily in the United States who had been displaced by the April 25 and May 12, 2015 earthquakes.
Following the 2015 earthquakes, the United States took the lead among donors in its commitment to help Nepal recover and build back safer through $190 million in grant assistance for earthquake relief, recovery and reconstruction assistance to date. This assistance exceeded our initial pledge of $130 million made at the International Conference on Nepal’s Reconstruction in June 2015 and demonstrates the United States’ commitment to a long-term partnership with Nepal and is focused on investing in sustainable efforts to transform Nepal into a resilient, capable partner, the US Embassy stated.
