New Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has announced an extension for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Haiti for an additional period of 18 months that will go into effect on July 23, 2014 valid through January 22, 2016, JCS Immigration and Visa, located in Los Angeles has just found out.
Our Los Angeles immigration attorneys have successfully helped hundreds of eligible nationals seek Temporary Protected Status and remain in the U.S. and obtain employment authorization. The process for current Haitian beneficiaries of TPS seeking a renewal is to re-register during a 60-day period starting March 3, 2014 until May 2, 2014. USCIS is encouraging TPS beneficiaries to re-register as soon as possible to ensure there are no delays or gaps in TPS status for eligible beneficiaries.
In order to re-register, current TPS beneficiary must apply on Form I-821.
