On September 9, 2021, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the automatic extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations for the following countries, through December 31, 2022:
The automatic extension includes TPS-based Employment Authorization Documents (EADs).
Current TPS beneficiaries are not required to pay any fees or file any applications with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to maintain their status or to have their employment authorization extended. Rather, they may demonstrate their continued status and eligibility to work in the United States by providing their employer with a copy of their current work permit and a copy of the Federal Register notice explaining the auto-extension, available at the following link: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-09-10/pdf/2021-19617.pdf.
For Haiti only, DHS advises that eligible individuals from Haiti whose TPS is presently continued by court orders and this notice apply for TPS under the recently announced new designation. DHS says this will ensure TPS will continue if the courts end their injunctions. In addition, eligible individuals who do not apply for the new Haiti TPS designation during the initial registration period—which runs from August 4, 2021 through February 3, 2023—may be prohibited from filing a late initial registration during any subsequent extension of the designation if they do not meet certain conditions.
