Applicants must also meet additional TPS eligibility requirements.

Applicants may also be eligible to apply for TPS-related Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) and for travel authorization.

The FRN explains the procedures necessary to submit an initial registration application under the designation and apply for an EAD, added the statement.
