The country of Yemen has been struggling through a state of emergency as a result of the civil war for approximately eight years, and over 377,000 residents have perished amidst the violence, causing many to flee to the United States. As Yemeni nationals would face extreme dangers if they were to return to the unsafe conditions and conflict occurring in their country of birth, they are now able to remain in the United States for a prolonged period of time. There has been an extension of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Yemen refugees for eighteen months due to the instability and conflict currently taking place throughout the country.
The extension time that Yemeni nationals are permitted to reside in this country under TPS is from March 4th, 2023, until September 3rd, 2024. It is important to note that only those who have been present in the United States as of December 29th, 2022, or after are eligible for the TPS extension. In order for the 1,700 current beneficiaries to be able to retain their TPS along with the approximate number of 1,200 individuals to be eligible for TPS for Yemen, individuals must be punctual in re-registering for the extension of their TPS. Those who possess a pending Form I-821 or Form I-765 are not required to re-file any application meanwhile new TPS applicants are mandated to submit Form I-765, and later Form I-821. Yemeni nationals are luckily able to remain in safe and secure conditions in the United States during the humanitarian crisis that is currently taking place in their mother country.
