If you file your TPS re-registration application late, you must submit a letter that explains your reason for filing late with your application. USCIS may accept the late re-registration TPS application if you have good cause for filing after the re-registration period for your country ends. Even if USCIS accepts your late re-registration, processing may be delayed and can lead to gaps in your work authorization.
The law requires USCIS to withdraw TPS for failure to re-register without good cause. Therefore, if you fail to re-register, you may lose your TPS, work authorization, and protection from removal from the United States.
