WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Safety John F. Kelly has actually expanded Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( as well as qualified individuals without citizenship who last constantly resided in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the suitable UNITED STATE government companies and evaluating country problems, Secretary Kelly has established that a minimal, six-month extension is necessitated. Although Haiti has actually made significant progress in recuperating from the January 2010 earthquake that prompted its classification, conditions in Haiti sustaining its classification continuously be satisfied right now.
Current recipients of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to extend their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017.

Present EADs will certainly not be immediately extended without a new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD demand is approved, they will certainly obtain a new EAD with an expiry date of Jan. 22, 2018.

Throughout this six-month extension, beneficiaries are urged to prepare for their return to Haiti in case Haiti’s classification is not expanded once more, including requesting updated traveling papers from the government of Haiti. At the very least 60 days prior to Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and will certainly establish whether one more expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is required, completely compliance with the Migration and also Race Act. The classification of TPS was intended by Congress to be short-lived, and the Secretary will completely re-evaluate the country conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS designation ought to continue.
