TPS FOR YEMEN EXTENDED AND REDESIGNATED

Updated 7/12/2021

On July 6, 2021, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the extension and redesignation of TPS for Yemen for 18 months through March 3, 2023. This means that many more Yemini in the U.S. may be eligible for TPS. And those who have already been granted TPS may continue to have protection from deportation and authorization to work.

Here are important deadlines for Yemenis in the U.S.:

  • Individuals who have already been granted TPS under Yemen's prior designation will need to timely re-register during the 60-day re-registration period which runs from July 9, 2021 through September 7, 2021.
  • Significantly, individuals who believe they may qualify for TPS under this new designation must apply during the initial registration period that runs from July 9, 2021 and through the full length of the re-designation period ending March 3, 2023. Individuals who are Yemeni nationals, or noncitizens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Yemen; who have continuously resided in the U.S. since July 5, 2021; and who have been continuously physically present in the U.S. since September 4, 2021, may be eligible to register for TPS. The Federal Register Notice also describes the other eligibility criteria applicants must meet.

See the Federal Register Notice for more details and links to the required application forms.
