TPS for Yemen Extended for 18 Months; EADs Automatically Extended Through Aug. 30, 2020
Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf has decided to extend the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for Yemen for 18 months, through Sept. 3, 2021. Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register March 2, 2020, through May 1, 2020.
Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS has automatically extended the validity of certain Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) issued under the TPS designation of Yemen through Aug. 30, 2020.
