Haiti's Temporary Protected Status (TPS) Extended

The US Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson has extended Haiti's designation for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for an additional 18 months. The extended designation will be effective on January 23, 2016, and will expire on July 22, 2017.


Since Haiti is a present TPS beneficiary, its eligible Haitians have to re-register during the 60-day mandatory period that runs from August 25, 2015, through October 26, 2015 as per U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) rule. Haiti received the designation for TPS on January 21, 2010, following the 2010 earthquake.

The extension will permit eligible TPS Haitian beneficiaries to request work permits or to apply for a new Employment Authorization Documents (EAD). USCIS also states that some re-registrants may not receive their new EADs until after their current EADs expire. Thus, UCIS is automatically extending current TPS for Haiti EAD with January 22, 2016 expiration; they are now valid through July 22, 2016.
