The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Monday announced a new 18-month designation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti.
Background: DHS initially designated Haiti for TPS in 2010. The Trump administration moved to end Haiti’s TPS designation in January 2018, but termination was challenged in court. Under current injunctions and other court rulings, TPS for Haiti remains in effect pending the outcome of the litigation.
Existing Haitian TPS beneficiaries retain their TPS and TPS-related documents through Oct. 4. DHS will continue to extend the status and documents to beneficiaries if required to comply with court orders. These beneficiaries can also apply to receive TPS for the 18-month period under the new designation.
