Extension of TPS for Haiti.

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas announced the extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti for an additional 18 months, from February 4, 2023, through August 3, 2023, due to temporary and extraordinary conditions in Haiti.
Mayorkas also redesignated Haiti for TPS, allowing Haitian nationals residing in the U.S. as of November 6, 2022, to apply for TPS through August 3, 2024, so long as they meet all eligibility requirements.
Haitians entering the U.S. after November 6, 2022, including those considering to enter now, are not eligible for TPS.
Due to the prolonged political crisis; gang violence; catastrophic earthquakes; and a lack of access to food, water, fuel and health care, the U.S. will be extending and redesignating Haiti for TPS.
