The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Yemen for 18 months through September 3, 2024. Current TPS beneficiaries from Yemen must re-register by March 6, 2023, to maintain their status. First-time applicants have until September 3, 2024, to register.
