Temporary Protected Condition for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Security John F. Kelly has prolonged Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( as well as qualified people without citizenship that last repeatedly lived in Haiti)through Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the appropriate U.S. government agencies as well as evaluating country conditions, Secretary Kelly has actually figured out that a limited, six-month extension is called for. Although Haiti has actually made significant development in recovering from the January 2010 earthquake that motivated its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its classification continuously be fulfilled currently.
Present beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS designation looking for to prolong their TPS has to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries that re-register might request a brand-new Work Permission Paper(EAD). Those who re-register and also ask for a brand-new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration duration might obtain an automatic extension of their expiring EAD for as much as 180 days from the day their existing EAD ends. Present EADs will not be automatically extended without a brand-new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD demand is accepted, they will obtain a new EAD with an expiration day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are highly encouraged to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as possible to stay clear of lapses in the paperwork of work permission.
Throughout this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are motivated to get ready for their go back to Haiti in the event Haiti’s classification is not expanded again, consisting of requesting upgraded travel documents from the federal government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and also will determine whether an additional expansion, a redesignation, or a termination is necessitated, in full compliance with the Immigration as well as Nationality Act. The designation of TPS was planned by Congress to be momentary, and also the Secretary will totally re-evaluate the nation conditions to determine whether Haiti’s TPS classification must proceed.
