PHILIPPINE GOVT REQUESTS TPS

Rate this Entry
by Chris Musillo

Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert F. del Rosario has formally requested the United States Government on Friday, December 13, to designate the country under Temporary Protected Status (TPS). TPS will allow eligible Filipinos to stay and work in the US in order for them to assist in the country’s continuing recovery efforts after Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) devastated parts of the Philippines.

The US government may take some time to evaluate the request. Even if the US government approves the TPS request, an applicant will need to prove that they have suffered hardship as a result of the Super Typhoon. If the applicant proves hardship he is allowed to stay in the US and granted work authorization.

The TPS for Haitian nationals is illustrative. Haiti suffered a massive earthquake in January 2010. The US granted TPS for Hatian nationals who could prove that they have suffered an economic hardship as a result of the earthquake.
