Report a Change of Address to USCIS
Updated on 09/24/2020
Moreover, all noncitizens are required by law to report their change in residence within 10 days of the move, so it is crucial that you avoid filing a late change of address. Even if you are a green card holder that has an approved application with the USCIS, it is prudent to keep them informed in case they need to contact you at a later date.
The USCIS offers several ways to report a change of address. You should take one of them based on your own situation.
1. Methods of reporting a change of address to USCIS
Online, through USCIS’s official website
Another way to inform the USCIS about a change of address is by calling them at 1-800-375-5283. However, noncitizens are required to follow the call up with a mailed paper Form AR-11 or an online change of address submission.
2. Useful tips for reporting a change of address to USCIS
3. Telling USPS is not the same as telling USCIS
The United States Postal Service also offers change of address cards so that your mail can be forwarded to you after you move. However, the USPS does not pass this information on to other organizations, such as the USCIS.
Therefore, you can doubly ensure that you receive your mail about your immigration process and status by informing both the post office and the USCIS that you have moved.
4. I-864 sponsor’s notice of change of address
If you have ever sponsored green card for any foreign national or being a joint sponsor for any immigrant petition, and your sponsorship responsibility has not been duly released, you are obligated to report the change of address to USCIS within 30 days of the change.
