CIS extended the time to January 29, 2013 for Haitians to re-register.
Haitians in the US that were previously approved for Temporary Protected
Status (TPS) and want to extend their TPS that status for 18 months more
need to re-register. Due to the recent impact of Hurricane Sandy on areas
in the US where Haitians reside, the re-registration period that was closed
as of November 30, 2012 has been extended through Jan. 29, 2013.
Qualified Haitian should file as early as they can. CIS indicates they
will accept applications from eligible individuals that applied after
the close of the re-registration period on Nov. 30, 2012, but CIS is not
clear if they will accept the applications that have had been filed late
or those that filed late need to submit their applications. Again the
deadline for filing is before January 30, 2013.
There are about 60 thousand Haitian nationals others that are qualified
to apply. Haitian nationals who entered the United States after January
12, 2011 are not qualified for TPS.
