The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced today the extension and redesignation of Haiti’s Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months from February 4, 2023 to August 3, 2024. People who have been living in the United States since 6 November 2022 will be eligible for TPS as part of Haiti’s redesignation. Haitians who entered the United States after November 6, 2022, and those who have just joined, are not eligible for TPS.
We will publish a Federal Register notice that will explain the procedures required to re-register under the extension or submit an initial registration under redesignation and request an Employment Authorization Document. Applicants for TPS need to wait for the publication of the Federal Register notice before filing an application for TPS. Individuals who have resided in the United States since November 6, 2022 and have a pending TPS application do not need to file another one at this time.
