Temporary Protected Condition for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Safety and security John F. Kelly has actually expanded Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and also qualified people without citizenship that last habitually stayed in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the proper U.S. federal government agencies as well as examining country conditions, Assistant Kelly has actually determined that a limited, six-month expansion is warranted. Although Haiti has actually made significant development in recovering from the January 2010 quake that prompted its classification, conditions in Haiti supporting its designation continuously be satisfied at this time.
Current recipients of Haiti’s TPS classification seeking to extend their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients that re-register could ask for a brand-new Employment Authorization Paper(EAD). Those who re-register as well as request a new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period might receive an automated expansion of their running out EAD for as much as 180 days from the day their current EAD ends. Present EADs will not be immediately extended without a new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD request is accepted, they will certainly receive a new EAD with an expiry date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are strongly encouraged to re-register and submit their EAD applications as early as possible to prevent gaps in the documents of work consent.
Throughout this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are urged to plan for their go back to Haiti in the event Haiti’s designation is not extended once again, including requesting upgraded traveling records from the federal government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Secretary Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti and will certainly identify whether another expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is called for, in full conformity with the Immigration and Race Act. The designation of TPS was meant by Congress to be short-term, and also the Secretary will totally re-evaluate the country conditions to determine whether Haiti’s TPS classification ought to proceed.
To re-register, present TPS beneficiaries should send: · Type I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Standing (Re-registrants do not should pay the Kind I-821 application cost). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver demand)if they are 14 years of ages or older.
· Form I-765, Application for Work Authorization, regardless of 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 Form I-765 application cost or a fee-waiver request, but only if they desire an EAD.
