This article provides an update on TPS for nationals of El Salvador and some strategies on how to prepare for the expiration of the program.
El Salvador TPS Update

However, on September 9, 2019 anyone on TPS will no longer be legally living in the U.S.
Jan 2018 Strategies for El Salvador TPS
There are several possible U.S. immigration strategies for citizens of El Salvador. These strategies do not apply to everyone. However, they can be considered in some instances.
Because of the complexity, all TPS holders should consult with a qualified immigration lawyer to seek options.
A few possible immigration strategies for citizens of El Salvador include:
- Advance Parole
- Relocating to states within the jurisdiction of the 9th circuit court or 6th circuit court
