Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly has actually extended Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and also eligible people without race who last habitually lived in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the proper U.S. federal government companies and reviewing nation problems, Secretary Kelly has actually determined that a limited, six-month expansion is warranted. Although Haiti has made significant development in recovering from the January 2010 quake that triggered its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its designation continue to be met right now.
Present recipients of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to prolong their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries that re-register might request a new Employment Consent Document(EAD). Those who re-register and ask for a new EAD during the 60-day re-registration duration could get an automated extension of their ending EAD for up to 180 days from the day their existing EAD expires. Current EADs will certainly not be immediately expanded without a brand-new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD request is approved, they will obtain a new EAD with an expiry day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are highly encouraged to re-register as well as file their EAD applications as early as feasible to prevent lapses in the paperwork of work authorization.
During this six-month extension, beneficiaries are urged to get ready for their return to Haiti in case Haiti’s designation is not expanded once more, consisting of asking for updated travel documents 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 also will certainly determine whether another extension, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is necessitated, in full compliance with the Migration as well as Citizenship Act. The designation of TPS was meant by Congress to be temporary, and also the Assistant will fully re-evaluate the nation problems to establish whether Haiti’s TPS classification need to proceed.
To re-register, present TPS recipients have to submit: · Type I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Standing (Re-registrants do not need to pay the Form I-821 application fee). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver demand)if they are 14 years old or older.
· Form I-765, Application for Employment Permission, despite whether they want an EAD.< p style =”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 Type I-765 application charge or a fee-waiver request, but only if they want an EAD. If the re-registrant does not want an EAD, no Form I-765 application cost is needed. Applicants could request that USCIS forgo the Kind I-765 application
charge and/or biometric services fee based on a failure to pay.
