USCIS Notice of Designation of Haiti for TPS

On Tuesday, August 3, 2021, the Department of Homeland Security announced that they were designating Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the country of Haiti for 18 months, from August 3, 2021 until February 3, 2023. This designation of TPS is based upon ongoing armed conflict and extraordinary conditions in Haiti making return un-safe.

For further details please review the AILA Document, “USCIS Notice of Designation of Haiti for TPS“.



The Secretary of Homeland Security may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately. USCIS may grant TPS to eligible nationals of certain countries (or parts of countries), who are already in the United States. Eligible individuals without nationality who last resided in the designated country may also be granted TPS.
