After announcing the termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians on November 20, 2017, and for Salvadorans on January 8, 2018, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced yesterday that it would begin accepting re-registration applications for Haitians and Salvadorans who already have TPS and want to maintain their status through the effective termination date of July 22, 2019, and September 9, 2019, respectively. Per USCIS guidelines, eligible applicants from both countries must re-register between January 18, 2018, and March 19, 2018.
USCIS will also issue new Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) with a July 22, 2019, expiration date to eligible Haitian TPS beneficiaries and September 9, 2019, expiration date to eligible Salvadoran TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs. In addition, USCIS has automatically extended for 180 days the validity of EADs issued and currently valid (non-expired) under the TPS designation of Haiti, through July 21, 2018, and under the TPS designation of El Salvador, through September 5, 2018.
Haitians and Salvadorans with TPS should consult with a qualified immigration attorney about their eligibility for TPS re-registration and about possible eligibility for another immigration status or benefit that would allow you to remain in the United States legally after the effective termination of TPS for these countries in 2019.
