Renewal of TPS for Haitians

Below are some of the most common questions I hear regarding TPS for Haitians. Here is some important information you should know. COMMON QUESTIONS: If I was granted Temporary Protected Status after the earthquake in Haiti, when do I have to renew? How much will it cost me? What if I don't have the money? What are my options? On October 1, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) extended Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for nationals of Haiti (this also extends to those who have no nationality, but last resided in Haiti before the Earthquake). IMPORTANT DATES: There is a short deadline, so APPLY NOW!!!!! The re-registration time is from October 1, 2012 to November 30, 2012. Those who timely apply and get approved will have TPS extended for 18 months, from January 23, 2013 to July 22, 2014. FEES FOR RE-REGISTERING FOR TPS If you are re-registering for TPS you must include the following fees:

  1. A bio-metric services fee of $85 (if you are 14 years of age or older)

  2. A fee of $380, if you wish to receive an Employment Authorization Document

  3. There is no fee required to submit the Application for TPS if you are RE-registering. (If you are registering for the first time, there will be a fee)

If you are not seeking an Employment Authorization Document, you must still submit the form without the fee. FEE WAIVER If you cannot afford the costs associated with filing, you can request a waiver. However, if USCIS denies the request, before the registration deadline, you may re-file and pay the correct fees either before the registration deadline or within 45 days of the date on the fee waiver denial notice, whichever is later.
