Temporary Protected Status for Haiti Extended for Six Months
WASHINGTON– Assistant of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has actually expanded Temporary Protected Standing(TPS)for eligible nationals of Haiti( as well as qualified people without citizenship that last repeatedly resided in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After talking to the proper U.S. federal government agencies and also reviewing nation conditions, Secretary Kelly has identified that a restricted, six-month expansion is required. Although Haiti has actually made substantial progress in recuperating from the January 2010 quake that motivated its designation, conditions in Haiti supporting its designation continue to be fulfilled right now.
Existing beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS classification seeking to expand their TPS must re-register by July 24, 2017. TPS beneficiaries who re-register could ask for a brand-new Employment Permission File(EAD). Those who re-register and also request a brand-new EAD during the 60-day re-registration duration could obtain an automated expansion of their ending EAD for up to 180 days from the day their present EAD expires. Existing EADs will not be automatically extended without a brand-new EAD request. If a beneficiary’s EAD demand is accepted, they will obtain a new EAD with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2018. TPS recipients are highly motivated to re-register and also submit their EAD applications as early as possible to avoid gaps in the documents of employment permission.
During this six-month expansion, beneficiaries are motivated to prepare for their return to Haiti in the event Haiti’s designation is not prolonged once again, including asking for updated travel records from the federal government of Haiti. At least 60 days before Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti and will establish whether an additional expansion, a redesignation, or a termination is required, in full compliance with the Migration and also Citizenship Act. The designation of TPS was intended by Congress to be short-lived, as well as the Assistant will fully re-evaluate the nation conditions to figure out whether Haiti’s TPS designation should proceed.
