News Release: Temporary Protected Status (TPS) - Haiti to terminate on July 22, 2019

Breaking News Release from USCIS - Haiti TPS

Acting Secretary Elaine Duke Announcement on Temporary Protected Status for Haiti

Release Date: November 20, 2017

Temporary Protected Status (TPS)HondurasWASHINGTON— In accordance with the recent decisions to terminate TPS for Honduras, Nicaragua and Sudan, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke has now announced that the TPS designation for Haiti will be terminated on July 22, 2019. This decision was made after an inter-agency consultation process determined that the conditions following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti that gave rise to the TPS designation no longer exists. DHS elected to delay the termination of TPS designation for Haiti for 18 months to allow for an smooth transition so that Haitians eligible for legal status can apply for it and everyone else can make arrangements to go come.

If you currently hold TPS from a Haiti or another country slated to lose TPS designation, you will be required to leave the country or begin the process of obtaining legal immgiration status, if you are eligible, on or before the TPS termination date.
