Extension and Redesignation of Haiti for TPS

Posted by Ann Badmus | Jan 25, 2023 | 0 Comments

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted a Federal Register notice for the extension and redesignation of Haiti for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, from Feb. 4, 2023, through Aug. 3, 2024. DHS previously announced the decision to extend and redesignate TPS for Haiti on Dec. 5, 2022.

This extension and redesignation of Haiti for TPS allows nationals of Haiti (and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Haiti) who have continuously resided in the United States since Nov. 6, 2022, and who have been continuously physically present in the United States since Feb. 4, 2023, to apply for TPS. Those who have been continuously residing in the United States since Nov. 6, 2022, and have a pending TPS application with USCIS do not have to refile at this time.

The Federal Register notice explains the procedures necessary for an existing TPS beneficiary to re-register under the extension and for an individual to submit an initial application under the redesignation and to apply for an Employment Authorization Document.

More Information
DHS will plan and coordinate outreach opportunities to provide information and answer questions from the public regarding the redesignation of Haiti for TPS.
