Temporary Protected Status for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Safety and security John F. Kelly has prolonged Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and qualified people without citizenship that last habitually lived in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the ideal U.S. government agencies and assessing country problems, Assistant Kelly has actually identified that a limited, six-month expansion is required. Although Haiti has made considerable progress in recouping from the January 2010 quake that motivated its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its designation continuously be satisfied currently.
Current beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to expand their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients who re-register might request a brand-new Employment Authorization Document(EAD). Those who re-register as well as ask for a brand-new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period may obtain an automatic expansion of their expiring EAD for as much as 180 days from the day their current EAD ends. Current EADs will certainly not be instantly prolonged without a brand-new EAD request. If a beneficiary’s EAD request is authorized, they will certainly get a brand-new EAD with an expiration day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are strongly encouraged to re-register as well as file their EAD applications as early as feasible to prevent gaps in the documents of work consent.
Throughout this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are motivated to plan for their go back to Haiti in case Haiti’s classification is not prolonged again, including asking for updated traveling documents from the government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Secretary Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti and will certainly determine whether an additional expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is required, completely conformity with the Immigration as well as Citizenship Act. The classification of TPS was planned by Congress to be momentary, as well as the Assistant will completely re-evaluate the country conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS designation must proceed.
