Expected extension of Temporary Protected Status for Haitians is finally official

May 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

This extension allows TPS beneficiaries to remain in the US through Jan. 22, 2013. Approximately 48,000 Haitian nationals with TPS reside in the US. In addition, a redesignation of Haiti for TPS has been made; eligible Haitian nationals who have continuously resided in the US since Jan. 12, 2011 will also be able to obtain TPS through Jan. 22, 2013. Under the original designation, TPS applicants needed to show that they had continuously resided in the US since Jan. 12, 2010, but the re-designation now permits eligible individuals who arrived up to one year after the earthquake in Haiti to receive the protection of TPS. Many of these individuals were authorized to enter the United States immediately after the earthquake on temporary visas, humanitarian parole and through other immigration measures. Haitians who are not currently in the United States will not qualify for TPS under this new TPS announcement and should not attempt to enter the US to try to take advantage of this benefit. No Haitian who arrived in the US after Jan. 12, 2011, will be eligible for TPS. (dhs)
