Temporary Protected Condition for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has extended Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( and also qualified individuals without nationality that last habitually lived in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After speaking with the appropriate U.S. government agencies and assessing country problems, Assistant Kelly has determined that a minimal, six-month expansion is warranted. Although Haiti has made considerable progress in recovering from the January 2010 quake that prompted its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its classification remain to be met right now.
Present recipients of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to expand their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries who re-register may request a new Employment Consent File(EAD). Those who re-register and also request a new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration duration might receive an automatic expansion of their ending EAD for as much as 180 days from the day their present EAD runs out. Existing EADs will not be immediately expanded without a new EAD demand. If a recipient’s EAD demand is accepted, they will certainly obtain a new EAD with an expiry date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are strongly motivated to re-register and also submit their EAD applications as early as feasible to stay clear of lapses in the documentation of work permission.
Throughout this six-month extension, beneficiaries are urged to plan for their go back to Haiti in case Haiti’s classification is not prolonged once again, including asking for upgraded traveling records from the federal government of Haiti. At the very least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti and will certainly identify whether another expansion, a redesignation, or a termination is necessitated, completely compliance with the Migration as well as Nationality Act. The classification of TPS was planned by Congress to be short-lived, and also the Assistant will completely re-evaluate the nation conditions to determine whether Haiti’s TPS classification should continue.
To re-register, existing TPS recipients need to send: · Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status (Re-registrants do not should pay the Type I-821 application fee). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver request)if they are 14 years of ages or older.
· Form I-765, Application for Employment Consent, despite whether they want an EAD.< p design =”margin-top: 0.8 em; margin-bottom: 0.8 em; margin-left: 38.9 pt; font-family: source_sans_pro_regular,”Source Sans Pro”, Arial, sans-serif;font-size: 14px;”> · The Kind I-765 application fee or a fee-waiver request, however just if they desire an EAD. If the re-registrant does not want an EAD, no Kind I-765 application cost is required. Candidates could request that USCIS forgo the Type I-765 application
cost and/or biometric service charges based upon a lack of ability to pay.
