Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians is Extended through July 22, 2017
DHS has extended eligibility for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians for an additional 18 months. Haitians who currently have TPS status must re-register by October 26, 2015. Applicants can also apply for a new Employment Authorization Card (EAD) with an expiration date of July 22, 2017. In recognition of the fact that most applicants will not receive their new EAD until after the listed expiration date on their current EAD, USCIS is automatically extending current EADs with an expiration date of January 22, 2016 for an additional 6 months, until July 22, 2016.
Failure to re-register by October 26, 2015 might result in the loss of eligibility to extend TPS status. This extension of the designation is only for those who filed during the initial TPS registration period. Those who failed to file during the initial TPS registration period must qualify under the eligibility requirements for late initial filing.
