USCIS Reminds Eligible Nationals of Haiti to File for Temporary Protected Status

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reminds eligible nationals of Haiti (and persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Haiti) to file for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). TPS was originally designated for Haiti in January 2010 in response to a catastrophic earthquake that devastated the country.

  • If you are filing for TPS for the first time, you may apply through Nov. 15, 2011
  • If you have TPS now but did not file your re-registration application before the Aug. 22, 2011, re-registration deadline, you may still be eligible to file late. Please visit the late re-registration for TPS guidance on the TPS Web page to determine if you may still apply. 

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.
