Temporary Protected Status
Publication Date

On November 20, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it terminated the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for Haiti. This TPS designation was supposed to expire on January 22, 2018. DHS has given TPS holders from Haiti an additional 18 months of TPS status (until July 22, 2019) and it is unlikely that TPS for Haiti will be extended past that date.

On January 18, 2018, DHS published a notice in the Federal Register explaining how TPS holders from Haiti can re-register and re-apply for work permits, also known as Employment Authorization Documents (EAD). A summary of what you can do now is below.
