Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy on many TPS beneficiaries’ ability to timely file for re-registration, DHS is extending the re-registration period through January 29, 2013 through this Notice. DATES: DHS extended Haiti TPS on October 1, 2012. The re-registration period that was to expire on November 30, 2012, will be extended with a new filing deadline of January 29, 2013." - Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 249 / Friday, December 28, 2012.
