Temporary Protected Status (TPS) has been extended for eligible Haitians for an additional 18 months, starting July 23, 2014 through January 22, 2016. If you have already been granted TPS, you must re-register during the 60-day period from March 3, 2014, through May 2, 2014. Re-register as soon as possible.
The extension will also provide a new Work Authorization (EAD) for those who request it. You will receive a new EAD card with an expiration date of Jan. 22, 2016. If you have re-registered, but do not receive your new EAD before your current card expires, USCIS is automatically extending your current card for an additional six months. These existing EADs are now valid through Jan. 22, 2015.
If you have a TPS Haiti EAD with an original expiration date of July 22, 2014, you may continue to work even if you have not yet received your new EAD card. Show your employer your current TPS-related EAD and a copy of the Federal Register notice. If USCIS approves your TPS re-registration application and you requested an EAD, you will be issued a new card with an expiration date of January 22, 2016.
