Temporary Protected Condition for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly has actually prolonged Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( as well as qualified people without citizenship who last constantly lived in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After talking to the proper UNITED STATE government companies as well as reviewing nation problems, Assistant Kelly has actually identified that a restricted, six-month extension is required. Although Haiti has made considerable development in recovering from the January 2010 earthquake that motivated its designation, problems in Haiti supporting its designation continue to be fulfilled right now.
Present beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to prolong their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries who re-register could ask for a brand-new Work Permission File(EAD). Those that re-register and ask for a new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period could get an automated expansion of their expiring EAD for up to 180 days from the day their present EAD expires. Present EADs will not be instantly expanded without a brand-new EAD request. If a beneficiary’s EAD demand is authorized, they will certainly get a new EAD with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are highly encouraged to re-register and also submit their EAD applications as early as possible to avoid lapses in the documentation of work consent.
Throughout this six-month expansion, recipients are urged to prepare for their return to Haiti in case Haiti’s designation is not extended again, consisting of requesting upgraded travel records from the government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti and also will certainly figure out whether one more extension, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is called for, in full compliance with the Immigration and Nationality Act. The designation of TPS was intended by Congress to be temporary, and the Secretary will completely re-evaluate the country problems to establish whether Haiti’s TPS classification need to continue.
To re-register, current TPS recipients need to submit: · Kind I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Condition (Re-registrants do not should pay the Type I-821 application cost). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver request)if they are 14 years old or older.
· Form I-765, Application for Work Consent, despite whether they want 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 fee or a fee-waiver demand, however just if they want an EAD.
