Temporary Protected Status for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Safety and security John F. Kelly has actually expanded Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and eligible individuals without nationality that last habitually stayed in Haiti)through Jan. 22, 2018. After speaking with the appropriate U.S. federal government firms and evaluating country problems, Assistant Kelly has actually identified that a restricted, six-month extension is required. Although Haiti has actually made significant progression in recovering from the January 2010 earthquake that triggered its designation, problems in Haiti sustaining its classification continue to be fulfilled currently.
Present recipients of Haiti’s TPS classification looking for to prolong their TPS must re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients that re-register may ask for a brand-new Work Permission Document(EAD). Those who re-register and also request a brand-new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration duration may obtain an automated expansion of their expiring EAD for approximately 180 days from the date their current EAD runs out. Existing EADs will not be immediately prolonged without a new EAD request. If a beneficiary’s EAD request is accepted, they will certainly get a brand-new EAD with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are highly motivated to re-register and also submit their EAD applications as early as possible to prevent gaps in the documentation of work permission.
Throughout this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are encouraged to plan for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s designation is not prolonged once again, including asking for upgraded travel records from the federal government of Haiti. At the very least 60 days prior to Jan. 22, 2018, Secretary Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti as well as will certainly figure out whether one more expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is warranted, in full compliance with the Migration and also Race Act. The classification of TPS was planned by Congress to be short-lived, as well as the Assistant will fully re-evaluate the nation conditions to figure out whether Haiti’s TPS designation ought to proceed.
To re-register, present TPS beneficiaries must submit: · Type I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status (Re-registrants do not have to pay the Form I-821 application cost). · The biometric service charges(or a fee-waiver demand)if they are 14 years of ages or older.
· Kind I-765, Application for Employment Consent, no matter whether they desire an EAD.< p design =”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 Type I-765 application charge or a fee-waiver demand, yet only if they desire an EAD.
