This is a list of Ambassadors of the United States to Yemen.

Prior to 1990, Yemen had consisted of two nations: North Yemen and South Yemen. The United States had diplomatic relations with North Yemen since 1946. Relations with South Yemen had been established in 1967 and broken in 1969.

On May 22, 1990, the Yemen Arab Republic (North Yemen) and the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen (South Yemen) united and formed a united Republic of Yemen. The existing U.S. embassy in San'a (North Yemen) became the embassy for the new republic. At that time there was no U.S. ambassador to South Yemen, so the then-current ambassador to North Yemen Charles Franklin Dunbar, continued to serve as the ambassador to the united Yemen until the end of his tour in 1991.

For U.S. ambassadors to North Yemen prior to 1990, see United States Ambassador to North Yemen.

For U.S. ambassadors to South Yemen prior to 1990, see United States Ambassador to South Yemen.
