WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly has prolonged Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and qualified individuals without race that last repeatedly resided in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After talking to the appropriate UNITED STATE government companies as well as assessing country problems, Assistant Kelly has figured out that a limited, six-month extension is necessitated. Although Haiti has made substantial progress in recuperating from the January 2010 quake that motivated its classification, problems in Haiti supporting its classification continuously be fulfilled at this time.
Present beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to extend their TPS has to re-register by July 24, 2017.

The designation of TPS was intended by Congress to be temporary, and the Assistant will completely re-evaluate the nation conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS designation need to continue.
