Non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. must report a change of address with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This must be done within 10 days of moving to a new address within America.
However, USCIS does not require diplomats who hold A visas, G visa holders and certain non-immigrants who are in the U.S. for less than 30 days, to report a change of address. All the other non-immigrants and immigrants will need to notify USCIS when there is an address change.
People who have pending cases with USCIS and people whose applications were recently approved by USCIS, either need to e-file Form AR-11, Change of Address or file the form by mail. Followed by that, they need to change the address on their pending or recently approved applications by phone or online.
They can use the USCIS online Change of Address system and complete Form AR-11 online. This system will also allow them to change their address on pending or recently approved applications after they complete Form AR-11. Those who complete this form online need not file the paper form. People who do not have pending cases with USCIS just need to complete the AR-11 application online or file the paper form.
Those who have pending or approved T or U non-immigrant visa applications or applications for VAWA and also have filed Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility, Form I-192, Application for Advance Permission to Enter as Non-immigrant, Form I-131, Application for Travel Document or I-929, Petition for Qualifying Family Member of a U-1 Non-immigrant, will need to file their change of address request at USCIS Vermont Service Center. These applicants cannot e-file applications to report a change of address.
Non-U.S. citizens need to give their new address to USCIS within ten days of moving and they need to notify USCIS every time they move to a new address. Those who fail to report a change of address with USCIS will be fined, as willfully failing to give USCIS their new address is a misdemeanor.
