TPS Re-Registration for Haitians

USCIS announced the opening of the 90-day re-registration period (May 23, 2011 through August 22, 2011) for individuals who were granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under the original designation of Haiti for TPS and whose initial TPS applications were approved on or before May 19, 2011. These TPS beneficiaries may now re-register under the 18-month extension of TPS for Haiti that was announced in the Federal Register notice published on May 19, 2011. New employment authorization documents (EADs) with a January 22, 2013 expiration date will be issued to eligible TPS beneficiaries who timely reregister and apply for EADs. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, the Department of Homeland Security recognizes that all re-registrants may not receive new EADs until after their current EADs expire on July 22, 2011. Accordingly, this notice automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of Haiti for six months, through January 22, 2012. This notice also explains to TPS beneficiaries and their employers which EADs are automatically extended. DATES: The extension of the TPS designation of Haiti is effective July 23, 2011, and will remain in effect through January 22, 2013. The 90-day reregistration period begins on May 23, 2011, and will be open through August 22, 2011
