WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has expanded Temporary Protected Standing(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and also qualified people without citizenship who last repeatedly resided in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the ideal U.S. government agencies and reviewing nation conditions, Secretary Kelly has determined that a restricted, six-month extension is warranted. Although Haiti has made considerable progress in recovering from the January 2010 quake that motivated its classification, problems in Haiti supporting its classification remain to be fulfilled at this time.
Present beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS classification looking for to expand their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017.

TPS recipients are highly encouraged to re-register and also file their EAD applications as early as possible to avoid gaps in the paperwork of work permission.
Throughout this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are encouraged to plan for their go back to Haiti in case Haiti’s designation is not extended once again, including asking for updated traveling records from the federal government of Haiti. A minimum of 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Secretary Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and will certainly figure out whether an additional extension, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is necessitated, completely compliance with the Migration as well as Nationality Act. The designation of TPS was meant by Congress to be short-term, as well as the Secretary will fully re-evaluate the country conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS classification should proceed.
