TPS Designation Extended for Haiti to January 22, 2013
following information is from the Department of Homeland Security website.
May 23, 2011, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) extended the designation of
Haiti for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, from the current expiration
date of July 22, 2011 to January 22, 2013.
Authorization Documents (EADs) set to expire on July 22, 2011 will be automatically
extended for six months until January 22, 2012. U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will issue new EADs with a January 22,
2013 expiration date to eligible TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply
for an EAD. For more information regarding the 18-month Haiti TPS Extension, please
refer to 76
FR 29000 (Extension Announcement), 76
FR 29777 (EAD Extension) or call the USCIS TPS Hotline at
1-202-272-1533 (not a toll free number).
determine if an EAD is affected by this automatic extension, look at the “Category”
section on the expiring (or expired) EAD. If either A12 or C19 is listed, then the
employee is a TPS beneficiary. Next, look at the expiration date of the EAD. If the
expiration date on the EAD is July 22, 2011, then the bearer is a TPS beneficiary
from Haiti and his or her employment authorization has been automatically extended.
If a different category or expiration date is listed, then the employee is not a TPS
beneficiary from Haiti, and the usual reverification rules apply.
