Maintaining F1 status with TPS?

Recommended Posts

Hi I am from Nepal and currently in CPT. My visa will expire in Jan 2016. I am planning to apply for TPS. I meet all criteria for applying TPS. My question is


1. Do I have to maintain my F1 status if I am granted TPS?

2.If I get travel permit from USCIS, can I travel to Nepal after Jan 2016 with TPS ? Will there be any issues at port of entry as my visa will be expired at that time?


Your suggestions will be very helpful

Thank you!

First, your use of CPT is likely to cause problems.

And you won't be able to come back unless you get a new F1 visa. TPS allows a person to stay in the US past their status expiration. A person who travels abroad doesn't have a status.
