On July 5, 2018, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced an 18-month extension of temporary protected status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Yemen. This is the second extension granted to Yemen due to the ongoing armed conflict that plagues much of the country. There are approximately 1,250 Yemeni TPS beneficiaries. 

The 18-month extension extends the program from September 3, 2018, to March 3, 2020. To maintain TPS status through the 2020 end date, Yemeni TPS beneficiaries must reregister during the designated reregistration period. Information about the reregistration process and employment authorization is expected to be published in the Federal Register in the coming weeks.
