Temporary Protected Status for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has extended Temporary Protected Standing(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and also qualified individuals without race who last habitually resided in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the suitable UNITED STATE federal government agencies and also assessing country conditions, Assistant Kelly has actually identified that a limited, six-month expansion is required. Although Haiti has made considerable development in recovering from the January 2010 quake that triggered its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its classification continuously be met right now.
Current beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS classification seeking to expand their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients that re-register may ask for a new Employment Permission Record(EAD). Those that re-register and also ask for a brand-new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration period might obtain an automatic extension of their expiring EAD for as much as 180 days from the date their present EAD expires. Present EADs will certainly not be automatically expanded without a new EAD request. If a recipient’s EAD demand is approved, they will receive a new EAD with an expiry date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are highly encouraged to re-register as well as submit their EAD applications as early as possible to prevent gaps in the documents of employment consent.
Throughout this six-month extension, beneficiaries are encouraged to prepare for their go back to Haiti in case Haiti’s classification is not expanded once again, consisting of requesting updated traveling papers from the federal government of Haiti. At the very least 60 days prior to Jan. 22, 2018, Secretary Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti as well as will identify whether an additional expansion, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is required, completely compliance with the Migration as well as Nationality Act. The designation of TPS was planned by Congress to be temporary, and the Assistant will totally re-evaluate the nation conditions to figure out whether Haiti’s TPS classification need to proceed.
