WASHINGTON — According to a USCIS press release, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has officially decided to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the country of Haiti.  With a delayed effective date of July 22, 2019 allowing eighteen (18) months for the people of Haiti to properly transition.

This decision to terminate the TPS was made after the staff at the Department of Homeland Security reviewed the conditions upon which the country’s original designation were based.

Haitians with TPS will be required to reapply for Employment Authorization Documents in order to legally work in the United States until the end of the respective termination or extension periods. Further details about this TPS can be found on the USCIS press release.
