Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti

What is TPS for Haiti? 

TPS is a temporary immigration status that gives some Haitians protection from deportation and the ability to get a work permit. You can only receive TPS for up to 18 months at a time. 

Who can get TPS?

Right now, only Haitians who have been living in the United States since at least November 6, 2022 are eligible for TPS. Haitians who came to the United States after this date are not currently able to get TPS.

My TPS is expiring soon. Can I renew it?

TPS for Haiti right now has only been granted until August 3, 2024.  That means that if you have TPS right now and you have a work permit through TPS, it will expire on August 3, 2024.  We likely will not know until June or July, whether TPS for Haiti will be renewed. Until an announcement is made about an extension, there is no way to renew TPS or renew TPS work permits.

✨ If your TPS expires on August 3, 2024, right now it is not possible to request a renewal. Right now, do not give money to anyone who promises to renew your TPS!

How can I find out if TPS is renewed?

When the US government announces if TPS for Haiti will be renewed, information will be put on the government’s website here: We will also put that information on our website and social media, including Instagram @mira_coalition and Facebook @miracoalition. If TPS for Haiti is renewed, you can contact your local legal services agency for more information and to get help with the renewal application. Visit to find your local legal services agency. 

How can I help make sure TPS for Haiti will be renewed?

You can make your voice heard! Let the US government know that TPS is an important humanitarian protection. Many organizations in Massachusetts and in other states are advocating for a renewal of TPS for Haiti.
