Haitian Temporary Protected Status Re-Registration Deadline

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that eligible nationals of Haiti who currently have Temporary Protected Status (TPS) must re-register for TPS by May 2, 2014.  Failure to re-register by this deadline may result in the loss of your TPS and your work authorization.

Your employee will receive a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD) with a January 22, 2014 expiration date if they re-register during the registration period.  USCIS recognizes that some re-registrants may not receive their new EADs until after their current EADs have expired, therefore, USCIS is automatically extending current TPS Haiti EADs with a July 22, 2014 expiration date for an additional six months.  These current EADs are now valid through January 22, 2015.

For further details and procedures on how to re-register for TPS, please visit the USCIS website or this Federal Register notice announcing the extension of TPS for Haiti.
