Change of Address Information

We strongly encourage you to update your address with USCIS to ensure you receive all correspondence and benefits from us in a timely manner and avoid possible delays related to your case.

Changing your address with the U.S. Postal Service will not change your address with USCIS. Please update your information with both USCIS and USPS.

How to Change Your Address  

If you fall into any of the categories below, please read the information in the corresponding section. However, most individuals can change their address in two ways:  

  • Filing Form AR-11, Alien’s Change of Address Card, online using the Change of Address webpage (as long as you didn’t file one of the forms in the sections below). Filing Form AR-11 online will update your address on all pending applications, petitions, or requests that you include on the form. You do not need to mail Form AR-11 if you use the change of address webpage.
