Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly has expanded Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( and also eligible individuals without citizenship who last habitually stayed in Haiti)through Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the suitable U.S. government agencies and also reviewing country problems, Secretary Kelly has identified that a minimal, six-month extension is required. Although Haiti has actually made considerable progression in recovering from the January 2010 quake that triggered its classification, problems in Haiti supporting its classification continue to be fulfilled at this time.
Current recipients of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to prolong their TPS needs to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients who re-register might ask for a brand-new Employment Authorization Paper(EAD). Those that re-register and ask for a new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period could receive an automatic extension of their running out EAD for up to 180 days from the day their present EAD expires. Existing EADs will certainly not be automatically expanded without a brand-new EAD request. If a beneficiary’s EAD request is approved, they will certainly obtain a new EAD with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are highly urged to re-register and also submit their EAD applications as early as feasible to stay clear of lapses in the paperwork of employment authorization.
During this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are urged to get ready for their return to Haiti in case Haiti’s designation is not prolonged once again, consisting of asking for upgraded travel documents from the federal government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti as well as will certainly determine whether another extension, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is warranted, in full conformity with the Immigration as well as Race Act. The designation of TPS was planned by Congress to be momentary, and also the Assistant will completely re-evaluate the nation conditions to determine whether Haiti’s TPS classification should continue.
