Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Safety John F. Kelly has extended Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( as well as eligible people without citizenship who last repeatedly stayed in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the appropriate UNITED STATE government firms and also reviewing country conditions, Assistant Kelly has actually determined that a minimal, six-month extension is warranted. Although Haiti has actually made substantial development in recovering from the January 2010 earthquake that motivated its classification, problems in Haiti supporting its designation continue to be fulfilled currently.
Current beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to prolong their TPS has to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries who re-register could request a brand-new Work Authorization File(EAD). Those that re-register and request a new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration period could receive an automatic expansion of their ending EAD for approximately 180 days from the day their existing EAD expires. Existing EADs will not be automatically extended without a brand-new EAD request. If a beneficiary’s EAD demand is authorized, they will certainly receive a brand-new EAD with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are highly encouraged to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as possible to stay clear of lapses in the documentation of work authorization.
Throughout this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are urged to prepare for their return to Haiti in case Haiti’s classification is not prolonged once again, including asking for updated traveling documents 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 determine whether one more extension, a redesignation, or a termination is warranted, in full conformity with the Immigration as well as Citizenship Act. The classification of TPS was meant by Congress to be temporary, and also the Assistant will totally re-evaluate the country conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS designation need to continue.
