Citizens or nationals of Haiti under a grant of Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, are required to re-register during the applicable re-registration period in order to maintain their protected status. The Re-registration period for Haitians is August 23, 2011! (Those applying for initial registration have until November 15, 2011.) Those wishing to re-register must file Form I-821 and I-765 with the applicable filing fees. For those who have not re-registered, they might want to consider e filing in order to register before the deadline closes. While TPS does not confer permanent residence, it does protect applicants from removal proceedings and detainment, in addition to allowing them to work and in some cases, travel.
