TPS Yemen Extended and Redesignated for 18 Months; EADs Automatically Extended Through March 3, 2024

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated Yemen for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) through Sept. 3, 2024. Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register between Jan. 3, 2023 through March 4, 2023. Yemeni nationals and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Yemen may submit an initial registration application under the redesignation of Yemen for TPS and apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).

Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration applications, USCIS has automatically extended through March 3, 2024, the validity of certain EADs issued under the TPS designation for Yemen.

Creating an E-Verify Case

Once a new employee has completed Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, create a case in E-Verify for this employee. If the employee presented their EAD that has been automatically extended, enter the EAD document number you entered on Form I-9, as well as the automatically extended date of March 3, 2024. You must reverify these employees on Form I-9 before they start work on March 4, 2024.

Find more details about this extension on the TPS Yemen page and instructions for completing Form I-9 on the I-9 Central TPS page.
