Washington, DC | www.adc.org | August 14, 2018 | The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) successfully campaigned for the renewal of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Yemen. Please adhere to the following notice for TPS re-registration for Yemeni beneficiaries.
Current TPS beneficiaries must re-register between August 14–October 15, 2018, to maintain their status through March 3, 2020. ADC encourages Yemeni TPS holders to apply as soon as possible.
If you have any questions or need assistance with the application, please contact the ADC Legal Department. Additionally, if you do not have TPS contact ADC immediately.
All applicants must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected and Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization.
To allow for processing time, all work permits for TPS re-registering applicants expiring September 3, 2018 are automatically renewed through March 2, 2019, to ensure there is no interruption in employment authorization. To obtain a work permit valid to March 3, 2020 you must submit a Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization.
To be eligible for TPS, a Yemeni individual must have continuously resided in the U.S. since January 4, 2017, and has been physically present since March 4, 2017. Re-registration requires a fee. If an individual demonstrates an inability to pay the fee, you may apply for a fee waiver here.
The Department of Homeland Security will reconsider Yemen’s TPS designation in January 2020.
