U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services opened the re-registration period today for current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, for Yemen who want to continue to maintain their status. The program has been extended until March 3, 2020.
Key dates and deadlines:
Background: The Department of Homeland Security originally designated Yemen for TPS on Sept. 3, 2015 and re-designated it on March 4, 2017. On July 5, 2018, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen announced that the status would be extended for 18 months until March 3, 2020 due to ongoing armed conflict and extraordinary conditions. Full reregistration instructions are available in the Federal Register announcement and on the USCIS website.
BAL Analysis: Current Yemeni TPS beneficiaries who want to maintain their status and employment authorization should re-register and apply for a new employment authorization document as soon as possible and not wait until their current one expires. Employers should be aware of the automatic extension of current employment authorization documents until March 2, 2019.
