Temporary Protected Status for Haiti Extended for 6 Months
WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Safety John F. Kelly has extended Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( and also qualified people without nationality that last habitually stayed in Haiti)through Jan. 22, 2018. After speaking with the appropriate U.S. federal government firms and examining country problems, Secretary Kelly has identified that a restricted, six-month expansion is required. Although Haiti has actually made significant progress in recuperating from the January 2010 quake that triggered its classification, problems in Haiti supporting its classification remain to be satisfied at this time.
Present beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS designation looking for to prolong their TPS needs to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients who re-register could ask for a brand-new Employment Consent Record(EAD). Those that re-register as well as request a new EAD during the 60-day re-registration duration may get an automatic expansion of their ending EAD for approximately 180 days from the date their current EAD expires. Present EADs will certainly not be immediately expanded without a brand-new EAD demand. If a beneficiary’s EAD demand is authorized, they will certainly get a brand-new EAD with an expiration day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are strongly motivated to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as possible to prevent lapses in the paperwork of employment authorization.
During this six-month expansion, recipients are encouraged to plan for their go back to Haiti in case Haiti’s designation is not prolonged once more, including requesting updated traveling files from the federal government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Secretary Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and also will certainly determine whether another extension, a redesignation, or a discontinuation is called for, in full compliance with the Migration and Citizenship Act. The designation of TPS was intended by Congress to be momentary, and the Secretary will completely re-evaluate the country problems to determine whether Haiti’s TPS classification must continue.
To re-register, present TPS beneficiaries must send: · Type I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Condition (Re-registrants do not have to pay the Type I-821 application fee). · The biometric service charges(or a fee-waiver demand)if they are 14 years old or older.
· Form I-765, Application for Employment 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 Form I-765 application charge or a fee-waiver request, but just if they desire an EAD.
