Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has prolonged Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and also eligible individuals without nationality that last repeatedly stayed in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the appropriate UNITED STATE government agencies and also reviewing country conditions, Secretary Kelly has identified that a restricted, six-month expansion is required. Although Haiti has made substantial development in recovering from the January 2010 earthquake that motivated its classification, conditions in Haiti sustaining its designation continue to be met right now.
Current recipients of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to extend their TPS needs to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients who re-register might ask for a new Employment Consent Paper(EAD). Those that re-register as well as request a new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration period might obtain an automatic extension of their ending EAD for up to 180 days from the date their present EAD ends. Current EADs will not be immediately extended without a new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD request is accepted, they will get a brand-new EAD with an expiry date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are strongly urged to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as feasible to stay clear of lapses in the paperwork of work permission.
Throughout this six-month extension, recipients are encouraged to plan for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s designation is not expanded once again, including asking for upgraded traveling papers 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 establish whether another expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is necessitated, in full compliance with the Migration and also Nationality Act. The classification of TPS was planned by Congress to be temporary, and also the Secretary will completely re-evaluate the nation conditions to establish whether Haiti’s TPS designation should continue.
To re-register, current TPS recipients must submit: · Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Standing (Re-registrants do not need to pay the Form I-821 application charge). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver request)if they are 14 years old or older.
· Kind I-765, Application for Employment Permission, no matter whether they desire 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 Kind I-765 application fee or a fee-waiver request, yet only if they want an EAD.
