Temporary Protected Condition for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has prolonged Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( as well as qualified people without race that last habitually resided in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After talking to the suitable U.S. government companies as well as assessing country problems, Assistant Kelly has determined that a restricted, six-month expansion is warranted. Although Haiti has made considerable progress in recouping from the January 2010 quake that motivated its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its classification continuously be met currently.
Current beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS designation looking for to prolong their TPS needs to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients who re-register may ask for a new Work Permission Paper(EAD). Those that re-register and request a new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period may receive an automated extension of their expiring EAD for approximately 180 days from the date their current EAD ends. Present EADs will certainly not be instantly expanded without a brand-new EAD demand. If a recipient’s EAD demand is authorized, they will certainly obtain a new EAD with an expiration day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are highly motivated to re-register and also file their EAD applications as early as feasible to avoid lapses in the documents of employment authorization.
During this six-month extension, recipients are motivated to get ready for their go back to Haiti in the event Haiti’s designation is not extended again, consisting of asking for upgraded travel files from the government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and will certainly identify whether another expansion, a redesignation, or a termination is warranted, in full compliance with the Immigration as well as Nationality Act. The classification of TPS was intended by Congress to be short-lived, and the Assistant will fully re-evaluate the country conditions to determine whether Haiti’s TPS designation should proceed.
To re-register, present TPS beneficiaries must send: · Kind I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Standing (Re-registrants do not have to pay the Form I-821 application charge). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver request)if they are 14 years old or older.
· Form I-765, Application for Employment Consent, despite whether they want an EAD.< p style =”margin-top: 0.8 em; margin-bottom: 0.8 em; margin-left: 38.9 pt; font-family: source_sans_pro_regular,”Resource Sans Pro”, Arial, sans-serif;font-size: 14px;”> · The Kind I-765 application charge or a fee-waiver demand, but only if they desire an EAD. If the re-registrant does not want an EAD, no Type I-765 application charge is called for. Candidates may request that USCIS waive the Type I-765 application
fee and/or biometric service charges based on a lack of ability to pay.
