Temporary Protected Standing for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Safety John F. Kelly has prolonged Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( as well as eligible individuals without nationality who last repeatedly lived in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the proper U.S. federal government agencies and also examining country conditions, Secretary Kelly has identified that a minimal, six-month extension is required. Although Haiti has made significant progression in recovering from the January 2010 quake that prompted its designation, conditions in Haiti sustaining its classification remain to be met right now.
Current recipients of Haiti’s TPS classification seeking to extend their TPS must re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients who re-register could request a brand-new Employment Permission Paper(EAD). Those who re-register and ask for a brand-new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration period might get an automated expansion of their running out EAD for up to 180 days from the day their present EAD ends. Existing EADs will not be immediately prolonged without a new EAD demand. If a recipient’s EAD request is authorized, they will certainly receive a brand-new EAD with an expiry date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS beneficiaries are strongly urged to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as possible to stay clear of lapses in the documentation of employment consent.
During this six-month extension, recipients are urged to plan for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s designation is not expanded once more, including asking for updated traveling documents from the government of Haiti. At the very least 60 days prior to Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and will figure out whether another extension, a redesignation, or a termination is warranted, in full compliance with the Migration and Nationality Act. The designation of TPS was intended by Congress to be short-lived, and also the Secretary will completely re-evaluate the nation conditions to identify whether Haiti’s TPS designation should proceed.
To re-register, existing TPS beneficiaries have to send: · Kind I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Condition (Re-registrants do not have to pay the Form I-821 application cost). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver request)if they are 14 years of ages or older.
· Type I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, despite whether they want 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 Form I-765 application charge or a fee-waiver demand, yet just if they want an EAD. If the re-registrant does not desire an EAD, no Form I-765 application charge is required. Applicants may ask for that USCIS waive the Form I-765 application
charge and/or biometric services fee based upon an inability to pay. To do so, applicants should file< a href =”http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=4c30003cf147c210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=6ca66d26d17df110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD” design=”color: rgb(153, 0, 102); “> Type I-912, Request for Charge Waiver, or submit a written demand. Fee-waiver requests should be come with by sustaining documentation. USCIS will certainly decline the TPS application of any candidate that fails to submit the required filing charges or a properly recorded fee-waiver demand.
