Haitian Temporary Protected Status Extended and Re-Designated

May 2011

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that temporary protected status (TPS) has been extended and re-designated for Haitians.  The TPS extension applies to TPS that was first designated in 2010, following the January 2010 earthquake. 

Under the initial designation, a qualified Haitian applicant had to demonstrate, among other things, that she continuously resided in the United States since January 12, 2010.  The re-designation broadens TPS relief to include Haitians who may have arrived following the earthquake. Under the re-designation, qualified applicants must demonstrate, among other things, that they have continuously resided in the United States since January 12, 2011. 

For qualified Haitians applying under the extension or the re-designation, TPS benefits, which may include protection from removal and employment authorization, are effective July 23, 2011 through January 22, 2013.
