USCIS Reminds Haitians That They May File Late for TPS

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently reminded eligible nationals of Haiti (and persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Haiti) who have not filed their temporary protected status (TPS) applications to follow guidance about late filing.

Haiti was originally designated for TPS in January 2010 in response to a catastrophic earthquake, and was re-designated in May 2011. The registration period for individuals filing for TPS for the first time ended on November 15, 2011. The re-registration filing period for individuals previously granted TPS ended on August 22, 2011.
