Deadline for Haitians with TPS Coming Up

USCIS released a reminder for Eligible Haitian to file for Temporary Protected Status ("TPS").  

On August 12, 2011, USCIS released a reminder for Nationals of Haiti to file for TPS before the deadline.  TPS was granted to Haitians in January of 2010 after the catastrophic earthquake.  That TPS status has been extended through January 22, 2013.
Who can file, renew or re-register:
1)  Haitians filing for the first time can apply through NOVEMBER 15, 2011.
2)  Haitians who filed in January 2010 but whose applications are still pending as of May 19, 2011 will NOT need to file a new FORM I-821 (Application for TPS).
3)  Haitians who were granted TPS through JULY 22, 2011 and who plan to remain in the United States MUST RE-REGISTER no later than AUGUST 22, 2011 - THIS COMING MONDAY.  Failure to re-register before the deadline without good cause will result in withdrawal of TPS benefits, such as employment authorization and protection from removal.
