DHS Extends Designation of Yemen for TPS

The DHS has announced (82 FR 859) that the Secretary of Homeland Security is extending the designation of the Republic of Yemen for Temporary Protected Status ("TPS") for 18 months, from March 4, 2017, through September 3, 2018, and redesignating Yemen for TPS for 18 months, effective March 4, 2017, through September 3, 2018. Through the Notice, DHS also sets forth procedures necessary for Yemeni nationals (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Yemen) either to re-register under the extension, if they already have TPS, and to apply for renewal of their Employment Authorization Documents ("EAD") with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services or submit an initial registration application under the redesignation and apply for an EAD.
