Temporary Protected Condition for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has prolonged Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( and also qualified individuals without nationality that last habitually resided in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the suitable UNITED STATE federal government firms and reviewing nation problems, Secretary Kelly has established that a minimal, six-month extension is necessitated. Although Haiti has made substantial progress in recovering from the January 2010 earthquake that triggered its designation, problems in Haiti supporting its designation remain to be satisfied right now.
Existing recipients of Haiti’s TPS designation looking for to extend their TPS must re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients who re-register may ask for a brand-new Employment Consent Document(EAD). Those that re-register as well as request a brand-new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration period could obtain an automatic extension of their expiring EAD for up to 180 days from the date their present EAD runs out. Existing EADs will not be immediately prolonged without a brand-new EAD request. If a recipient’s EAD demand is accepted, they will certainly get a new EAD with an expiry day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are highly motivated to re-register and also submit their EAD applications as early as possible to stay clear of gaps in the documentation of work permission.
During this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are urged to prepare for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s designation is not expanded once more, consisting of asking for upgraded traveling papers from the government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti as well as will identify whether one more extension, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is warranted, in full conformity with the Migration and also Nationality Act. The classification of TPS was intended by Congress to be short-lived, and also the Secretary will completely re-evaluate the country conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS designation should proceed.
To re-register, present TPS recipients must send: · Kind I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status (Re-registrants do not have to pay the Type I-821 application charge). · The biometric services fee(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 cost or a fee-waiver demand, but only if they want an EAD.
