USCIS Alerts Yemenis to Available Immigration Relief Measures
Due to the unstable security situation in Yemen, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently highlighted available immigration relief measures that may assist eligible Yemeni nationals:
- Change or extension of nonimmigrant status for an individual currently in the United States, even if the request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired;
- A grant of re-parole;
- Expedited adjudication and approval, where possible, of requests for off-campus employment authorization for F-1 students experiencing severe economic hardship;
- Expedited adjudication of employment authorization applications, where appropriate; and
- Consideration for waiver of fees associated with USCIS benefit applications, based on an inability to pay.
