Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has actually extended Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and also qualified individuals without nationality that last constantly lived in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the suitable U.S. government companies and assessing nation conditions, Assistant Kelly has actually determined that a restricted, six-month extension is warranted. Although Haiti has made considerable development in recuperating from the January 2010 quake that triggered its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its designation remain to be satisfied right now.
Current beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS classification looking for to prolong their TPS has to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries who re-register may ask for a brand-new Employment Consent Paper(EAD). Those that re-register and ask for a brand-new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration period may obtain an automated expansion of their ending EAD for up to 180 days from the date their present EAD runs out. Present EADs will not be instantly expanded without a brand-new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD demand is accepted, they will obtain a brand-new EAD with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are highly motivated to re-register and also file their EAD applications as early as possible to prevent gaps in the paperwork of employment permission.
During this six-month expansion, recipients are motivated to get ready for their return to Haiti in case Haiti’s classification is not prolonged once again, consisting of requesting upgraded travel documents from the government of Haiti. At the very least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Secretary Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and also will figure out whether one more expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is necessitated, in full conformity with the Immigration and also Race Act. The designation of TPS was meant by Congress to be temporary, as well as the Secretary will fully re-evaluate the country conditions to figure out whether Haiti’s TPS classification must proceed.
