WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly has extended Temporary Protected Standing(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( and also eligible individuals without citizenship who last constantly stayed in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the appropriate U.S. federal government agencies and also examining country problems, Secretary Kelly has actually determined that a minimal, six-month expansion is warranted.

TPS beneficiaries are strongly urged to re-register and also file their EAD applications as early as feasible to avoid lapses in the documents of work consent.
Throughout this six-month expansion, recipients are encouraged to plan for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s classification is not prolonged again, including requesting updated traveling records from the government of Haiti. A minimum of 60 days prior to Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and also will certainly establish whether an additional expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is necessitated, in full conformity with the Migration and Citizenship Act. The designation of TPS was planned by Congress to be short-term, as well as the Assistant will totally re-evaluate the nation conditions to establish whether Haiti’s TPS designation must proceed.
