HAITI GETS SIX MONTHS TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS EXTENSION

HAITI GETS SIX MONTHS TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS EXTENSION

The Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) John F. Kelly announced yesterday his decision to extend—for an additional six months—the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for Haiti.  This extension is effective July 23, 2017 through January 22, 2018.

According to DHS, the six-month extension is to allow Haitian TPS recipients living in the United States time to attain travel documents and make other necessary arrangements for their ultimate departure from the United States, and should also provide the Haitian government with the time it needs to prepare for the future repatriation of all current TPS recipients. The DHS is working closely with the Haitian government, including assisting the government in proactively providing travel documents for its citizens.
