HOW CAN I CHANGE MY ADDRESS WITH IMMIGRATION?

by Sara B. Writer | Blogger | Content Creator

All foreigners who are required to register with the Immigration Service or Immigration Court are also required to update their mailing address. That is, if you have an Immigration case, you must report a change of address no later than ten (10) days after moving.

Reporting your change of address is particularly important when you have filed an application or petition for an immigration benefit and are awaiting notification of a decision regarding such an application. In addition, the Immigration Service or the Court may still need to contact you to provide changes to your case, notice of any other document that you have issued from your petition, or return original documents to you. Remember the following: United States citizens or residents who have served as a sponsor for a family member must also update their address with the Immigration Service in order to receive any notification of any request as a sponsor.

The change of address with the Immigration Service (USCIS) can be done in several ways, for example: completing an AR-11 Form and mailing it (in English) to the Immigration Service.

Remember, always mention your case number (Receipt Number) and foreigner number (Alien or A number) when making a change of address. To make the address change with the Immigration Court (EOIR), you must complete and submit a Form EOIR-33 directly to the Court in charge of your case.

Keep in mind the following: complying with notifying the Immigration Service or the Immigration Court of any change of address is generally a condition of your stay in the United States. If you do not meet this requirement, you could jeopardize your ability to obtain immigration benefits or a visa in the future. Furthermore, you may even be subject to removal or deportation from the United States or to a fine, for having committed the misdemeanor of not notifying your change of address.
