The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has warned eligible nationals of Haiti who currently have Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to re-register by May 2, 2014. Approximately 50,000 Haitian nationals with TPS reside in the United States.
“Failure to re-register by this deadline may result in the loss of your TPS and your work authorization,” said the USCIS in a statement issued here. If you re-register during the registration period and request employment authorization, you will receive a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD) with an expiration date of January 22, 2016.” [. . .]
USCIS said it recognizes that some re-registrants may not receive their new EADs until after their current EADs have expired. Therefore, it said it is automatically extending current TPS Haiti EADs with a July 22, 2016, expiration date for an additional six months.
In early March, US Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, extended TPS for eligible nationals of Haiti for an additional 18 months, effective July 23, 2014 through January 22, 2016.
Current Haitian beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS status must re-register during a 60-day period that runs from March 3, 2014, through May 2, 2014. [. . .]
