Temporary Protected Status for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has expanded Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( as well as eligible people without nationality who last constantly lived in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the proper U.S. government agencies and assessing nation problems, Secretary Kelly has identified that a limited, six-month expansion is required. Although Haiti has made considerable progress in recovering from the January 2010 earthquake that motivated its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its classification continue to be satisfied right now.
Present recipients of Haiti’s TPS classification seeking to prolong their TPS needs to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients that re-register could ask for a brand-new Work Authorization Record(EAD). Those that re-register and request a new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration duration may obtain an automatic expansion of their expiring EAD for as much as 180 days from the date their existing EAD ends. Existing EADs will certainly not be instantly prolonged without a new EAD request. If a recipient’s EAD demand is approved, they will certainly obtain a brand-new EAD with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are strongly encouraged to re-register and also submit their EAD applications as early as feasible to prevent lapses in the documents of employment permission.
Throughout this six-month extension, recipients are urged to prepare for their return to Haiti in case Haiti’s classification is not extended again, including asking for updated travel papers from the federal government of Haiti. At the very least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Secretary Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti and will figure out whether an additional expansion, a redesignation, or a termination is required, in full conformity with the Migration as well as Citizenship Act. The designation of TPS was meant by Congress to be short-term, as well as the Assistant will fully re-evaluate the country conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS classification must continue.
To re-register, existing TPS beneficiaries must send: · Kind I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status (Re-registrants do not should pay the Kind I-821 application charge). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver demand)if they are 14 years old or older.
· Type I-765, Application for Employment Permission, regardless of 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 Form I-765 application charge or a fee-waiver request, however only if they want an EAD. If the re-registrant does not desire an EAD, no Form I-765 application charge is needed. Candidates could request that USCIS waive the Kind I-765 application
cost and/or biometric service charges based on a failure to pay. To do so, candidates should submit< a href =”http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=4c30003cf147c210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=6ca66d26d17df110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD” style=”shade: rgb(153, 0, 102); “> Form I-912, Ask for Fee Waiver, or submit a created request.
