Temporary Protected Status for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has actually extended Temporary Protected Status(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and eligible individuals without nationality who last habitually stayed in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After talking to the suitable U.S. federal government firms and examining country problems, Secretary Kelly has actually determined that a minimal, six-month extension is warranted. Although Haiti has actually made significant development in recouping from the January 2010 quake that triggered its classification, problems in Haiti sustaining its designation continuously be fulfilled at this time.
Existing recipients of Haiti’s TPS designation seeking to extend their TPS should re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries who re-register might request a new Employment Authorization Document(EAD). Those who re-register and also ask for a new EAD throughout the 60-day re-registration duration might get an automatic extension of their ending EAD for up to 180 days from the day their existing EAD runs out. Existing EADs will not be instantly expanded without a new EAD request. If a recipient’s EAD request is authorized, they will certainly obtain a brand-new EAD with an expiration day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are strongly encouraged to re-register and also file their EAD applications as early as possible to stay clear of gaps in the documents of employment permission.
During this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are encouraged to plan for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s classification is not expanded once more, including requesting upgraded travel papers from the government of Haiti. A minimum of 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti and will identify whether another extension, a redesignation, or a termination is necessitated, in full compliance with the Immigration as well as Citizenship Act. The designation of TPS was intended by Congress to be short-term, and also the Secretary will completely re-evaluate the nation conditions to determine whether Haiti’s TPS classification ought to proceed.
