The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced today the extension of the designation of Yemen for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, beginning on March 4, 2023, through September 3, 2024. This extension allows existing TPS beneficiaries to retain TPS through September 3, 2024, so long as they otherwise continue to meet the eligibility requirements for TPS. Existing TPS beneficiaries who wish to extend their status through September 3, 2024, must re-register during the 60-day re-registration period. The redesignation of Yemen allows additional Yemeni nationals (and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Yemen) who have been continuously residing in the United States since December 29, 2022 to apply for TPS for the first time during the initial registration period. In addition to demonstrating continuous residence in the United States since December 29, 2022 and meeting other eligibility criteria, initial applicants for TPS under this designation must demonstrate that they have been continuously physically present in the United States since March 4, 2023, the effective date of this redesignation of Yemen for TPS.
