Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Security John F. Kelly has expanded Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( as well as qualified individuals without race who last repeatedly resided in Haiti)with Jan. 22, 2018. After speaking with the suitable UNITED STATE federal government agencies as well as assessing country problems, Assistant Kelly has determined that a restricted, six-month extension is warranted. Although Haiti has made considerable progress in recuperating from the January 2010 quake that motivated its classification, conditions in Haiti supporting its designation continue to be met at this time.
Current beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS classification looking for to prolong their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients that re-register could ask for a new Work Authorization File(EAD). Those that re-register and also request a new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period may obtain an automated extension of their expiring EAD for approximately 180 days from the date their present EAD expires. Current EADs will certainly not be automatically prolonged without a brand-new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD request is authorized, they will obtain a new EAD with an expiration day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are highly motivated to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as feasible to avoid lapses in the documents of work authorization.
Throughout this six-month extension, beneficiaries are encouraged to plan for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s classification is not expanded again, including asking for updated travel documents from the government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti as well as will certainly identify whether one more expansion, a redesignation, or a termination is necessitated, in full compliance with the Migration and Nationality Act. The designation of TPS was meant by Congress to be temporary, and also the Assistant will totally re-evaluate the country problems to establish whether Haiti’s TPS designation ought to continue.
