U.S. Department of Justice Weekly Digest Bulletin: Employment Authorization Documents Extensions for Yemen and Haiti (Aug. 2018)

Information on EADs for TPS Yemen
08/20/2018

USCIS has automatically extended the validity of Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) issued under the TPS designation of Yemen with an original expiration date of Sept. 3, 2018, for 180 days, through March 2, 2019.

Additionally, individuals who have EADs with an expiration date of March 3, 2017, and who applied for a new EAD during the last re-registration period but have not yet received their new EAD are also covered by this automatic extension.

If your EAD is covered by this automatic extension, you may continue to use your existing EAD through March 2, 2019, as evidence that you are authorized to work.

To prove that you are eligible to continue working legally, you may show the following documentation to your employer. Government agencies may also accept these documents if they need to determine your immigration status:

Your TPS-related EAD with a Sept. 3, 2018, expiration date; or
Your TPS-related EAD with a March 3, 2017 expiration date and your EAD application receipt (Form I-797C, Notice of Action) that notes the application was received on or after Jan. 4, 2017

Information on EADs for TPS Haiti
08/20/2018

USCIS is automatically extending the validity of certain employment authorization documents (EADs) issued under TPS Haiti through Jan. 17, 2019. If you are a TPS beneficiary under the Haiti designation with an EAD based on your TPS status, your EAD may now be valid through Jan. 17, 2019 if your EAD includes a category code of A12 or C19, you have not received your new EAD, and:

Your EAD expired on Jan.22, 2018, and you applied for a new EAD during the last re-registration period; or
Your EAD expired on July 22, 2017, and you applied for a new EAD on or after May 24, 2017.

You may continue to use your current EAD as evidence of your work authorization through Jan. 17, 2019. Because you have a pending EAD application, USCIS will mail you an individual Notice of Continued Evidence of Work Authorization that provides additional evidence of this automatic extension of your EAD through Jan. 17, 2019 to show to your employer. If you have not received the Notice of Continued Evidence of Work Authorization, please contact USCIS at 202-272-8377 or the USCIS Contact Center number. You may provide your employer with this notice until you receive your Notice of Continued Evidence of Work Authorization.
