TPS Yemen Extended and Redesignated for 18 Months; EADs Automatically Extended Through March 3, 2024
Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated Yemen for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) through Sept. 3, 2024. Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register between Jan. 3, 2023, through March 4, 2023. Yemeni nationals and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Yemen may submit an initial registration application under the redesignation of Yemen for TPS and apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS has automatically extended through March 3, 2024, the validity of certain EADs issued under the TPS designation for Yemen.
