Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has extended Temporary Protected Standing(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( as well as qualified individuals without nationality that last repeatedly resided in Haiti)through Jan. 22, 2018. After talking to the appropriate U.S. federal government agencies and also evaluating country problems, Assistant Kelly has actually figured out that a limited, six-month extension is called for. Although Haiti has actually made substantial progress in recuperating from the January 2010 earthquake that triggered its designation, problems in Haiti supporting its designation continue to be satisfied at this time.
Existing recipients of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to expand their TPS needs to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries that re-register could ask for a new Work Authorization Document(EAD). Those who re-register as well as request a brand-new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period may obtain an automatic expansion of their expiring EAD for up to 180 days from the day their present EAD expires. Present EADs will certainly not be instantly expanded without a new EAD request. If a recipient’s EAD demand is accepted, they will certainly get a brand-new EAD with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are strongly motivated to re-register as well as submit their EAD applications as early as possible to prevent gaps in the paperwork of employment authorization.
During this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are encouraged to prepare for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s classification is not extended once again, including asking for updated travel papers 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 figure out whether an additional extension, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is required, in full compliance with the Migration and Citizenship Act. The designation of TPS was meant by Congress to be momentary, and the Assistant will fully re-evaluate the country conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS designation need to proceed.
To re-register, present TPS beneficiaries need to submit: · Kind I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Standing (Re-registrants do not have 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 Work Authorization, regardless of whether they desire 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 Kind I-765 application cost or a fee-waiver request, yet just if they want an EAD. If the re-registrant does not want an EAD, no Kind I-765 application cost is needed. Candidates might request that USCIS waive the Form I-765 application
charge and/or biometric service charges based upon a lack of ability to pay. To do so, applicants have to file< a href =”http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=4c30003cf147c210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=6ca66d26d17df110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD” design=”color: rgb(153, 0, 102); “> Form I-912, Ask for Fee Waiver, or submit a written demand. Fee-waiver requests have to be gone along with by sustaining documents. USCIS will reject the TPS application of any applicant that cannot send the needed declaring fees or an effectively documented fee-waiver request.
