Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has expanded Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and eligible people without citizenship who last repeatedly resided in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the ideal U.S. government companies and evaluating nation conditions, Assistant Kelly has actually determined that a restricted, six-month expansion is warranted. Although Haiti has made considerable development in recovering from the January 2010 quake that triggered its classification, problems in Haiti sustaining its designation continue to be fulfilled at this time.
Current beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS classification looking for to extend their TPS has to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries that re-register may ask for a new Employment Permission Record(EAD). Those that re-register and also request a brand-new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period may get an automated extension of their expiring EAD for as much as 180 days from the date their current EAD ends. Existing EADs will not be immediately extended without a brand-new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD demand is accepted, they will certainly obtain a brand-new EAD with an expiry date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are highly urged to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as possible to prevent lapses in the paperwork of employment authorization.
Throughout this six-month extension, beneficiaries are urged to prepare for their return to Haiti in case Haiti’s designation is not expanded once more, including requesting updated traveling files from the federal government of Haiti. A minimum of 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and will certainly figure out whether one more expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is warranted, in full compliance with the Immigration and Citizenship Act. The designation of TPS was planned by Congress to be short-term, and the Assistant will fully re-evaluate the nation conditions to determine whether Haiti’s TPS classification must continue.
