The Department of Homeland Security has extended the designation of Haiti for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 additional months. This extension is granted for the periods from July 23, 2014 through January 22, 2016. This extension will allow current TPS beneficiaries to keep their status through January 22, 2016 as long as they otherwise continue to meet the requirements for TOPS status.
This extension was granted because the conditions in Haiti that originally prompted the designation of TPS continue to be met. Substantial (yet temporary) conditions in Haiti continue to prevent nationals of that country from safely returning home.
