Temporary Protected Status for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Safety John F. Kelly has expanded Temporary Protected Standing(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( and eligible individuals without citizenship that last constantly resided in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After consulting with the appropriate U.S. federal government firms as well as assessing nation conditions, Secretary Kelly has figured out that a minimal, six-month extension is called for. Although Haiti has actually made considerable progression in recuperating from the January 2010 earthquake that motivated its designation, conditions in Haiti sustaining its classification remain to be satisfied right now.
Existing recipients of Haiti’s TPS classification looking for to expand their TPS has to re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS recipients that re-register may ask for a new Employment Consent File(EAD). Those that re-register as well as ask for a new EAD during the 60-day re-registration period might receive an automatic extension of their expiring EAD for approximately 180 days from the day their existing EAD expires. Current EADs will certainly not be automatically expanded without a new EAD request. If a recipient’s EAD request is accepted, they will receive a brand-new EAD with an expiration day of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are highly motivated to re-register and file their EAD applications as early as possible to prevent gaps in the paperwork of work authorization.
During this six-month expansion, recipients are motivated to plan for their go back to Haiti in case Haiti’s classification is not extended once again, consisting of requesting updated traveling records from the government of Haiti. At least 60 days prior to Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the classification for Haiti and will identify whether another expansion, a redesignation, or a termination is necessitated, in full conformity with the Immigration and Nationality Act. The designation of TPS was intended by Congress to be short-lived, and the Secretary will completely re-evaluate the nation conditions to determine whether Haiti’s TPS designation should continue.
To re-register, current TPS beneficiaries need to submit: · Kind I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status (Re-registrants do not should pay the Kind I-821 application charge). · The biometric services fee(or a fee-waiver request)if they are 14 years of ages or older.
· Kind I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, despite whether they desire an EAD.< p design =”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 Kind I-765 application charge or a fee-waiver demand, but just if they want an EAD.
