USCIS Reminds Haitians to Follow Late Filing Instructions for TPS

Release Date: November 18, 2011

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reminds 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.

Please go to the ‘Filing Late’ section of the TPS Web page for guidance on how to file for TPS and to determine if you may still apply.      

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

For more information about TPS, including the registration application requirements, fees and procedures, see the Federal Register notice or visit the TPS and TPS Haiti Web pages.
