Haiti TPS Redesignated and Extended 

According to a USCIS press release, Haiti’s Temporary Protected Status was extended and redesignated for 18 months. That means it will stretch from August 4th of this year through February 3rd of next year. This is due to conditions in Haiti that are both extraordinary and temporary. Those conditions are: “several regions in Haiti continue to face violence or insecurity, and many have limited access to safety, health care, food, and water. Haiti is particularly prone to flooding and mudslides, and often experiences significant damage due to storms, flooding, and earthquakes. These overlapping humanitarian challenges have resulted in ongoing urgent humanitarian needs.”

EAD Extended for Certain TPS-Designated Countries 

In another press release, the USCIS announced that they have extended the validity of EADs (Employment Authorization Documents) for TPS beneficiaries in multiple countries. These countries include Nepal, Nicaragua, Honduras, Sudan, and El Salvador. 

To maintain your TPS benefits, if you are a current beneficiary under one of those designations and you haven’t yet re-registered, under the most recent designation extension, then you have to submit your Form I-821 during the current re-registration period. We understand this can be a bit confusing. An attorney from our firm is here to help you through the process. 

TPS In Brief 

U.S. inhabitants who have a continuous resident status can seek Temporary Protected Status (TPS) if the conditions in their home country become unstable. The TPS mandate stipulates that beneficiaries must return home once the situation improves, with the timeline set by the relevant federal body. This is different from asylum. That’s for people who may face harm or persecution in their country individually, that there are specific threats to their person. TPS is for a larger group of people, a bigger demographic. 

Yes,  Late TPS Application is Possible

While not optimal, late initial TPS applications are sometimes permissible. As you might imagine, the procedure is complex. For example, you could be eligible if you go about registering while your country conditions persist or less than 60 days after the condition ends. On top of that, maybe you had non-immigrant status or were given voluntary departure or similar removal relief. Perhaps you had a pending application for immigration benefits such as change of status, adjustment of status, voluntary departure, asylum, or other removable proceedings relief. It could even be that you were a parolee or had a pending request for re-parole. Those aren’t all of the ways that you could apply late, there are others. To ensure your eligibility and application success, it is crucial to consult a TPS immigration attorney.
