USCIS extended the temporary protected status (TPS) designation for Haiti for 18 months from July 23, 2014 through January 22, 2016 due to ongoing recovery efforts from the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti. For individuals who already have TPS, the re-registration period runs from March 3, 2014 through May 2, 2014. ICE also extended the suspension of certain requirements relating to employment authorization for Haitian F-1 students who are experiencing severe economic hardship until January 22, 2016.
