    South Sudan was initially designated for TPS on October 13, 2011, on the basis of ongoing armed conflict and extraordinary and temporary conditions in South Sudan that prevented nationals of South Sudan from safely returning. The previous 18-month extension of the TPS designation of South Sudan was effective on November 3, 2017, and remained in effect through May 2, 2019.
