You’ve become a citizen, Now What?!

Congratulations on becoming a citizen, now you can take advantage of all the things citizenship has to offer. But first, you need to do some housekeeping.

  1. Update your status on any pending immigration applications you may have (for your child or spouse for example)
  2. Register to Vote!
  3. Start any applications for family members that may have previously been unavailable to you (for your brother or sister for example).

TPS for Yemeni Nationals

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson designated Yemen for TPS, effective through March 3, 2017, due to the ongoing armed conflict there.  This designation means eligible Yemeni nationals, or people without nationality who last habitually resided in Yemen, can apply to temporarily remain in the United States during this period. They may also receive a work permit.

Only individuals who have continuously resided in the United States, and been continuously physically present, since September 3, 2015, are eligible to register for TPS for Yemen.

March 1, 2016, is the last day to register for TPS for Yemen.
