Haiti’s Temporary Protected Status Extended

It came as a relief for Haiti when Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano announced that Haiti’s Temporary Protected Status (TPS) has been extended.
The Department of Homeland Security will publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing this decision, sometime next week.

The Federal Register notice will provide the additional guidance on:
- What are the criteria that would qualify an individual for TPS;
- If you already have a TPS, how to process for re-registration;
- When is the right time to begin filing TPS applications;
- What is the procedure to request an Employment Authorization Document (EAD);
- Six-month automatic extension of current EADs;
- What are the TPS fees and fee waiver procedures;
- Other information related to TPS.

The re-registration period of 60 days for current Haiti TBS beneficiaries will begin on the day the Federal Register notice publishes.
Individuals who have not continuously resided in the United States since Jan. 12, 2011 will not be eligible.
