Change Your Address Online


People who have filed an application or petition with USCIS but have not yet received a decision (a "pending" case) should notify USCIS of any change of address as soon as possible after moving.

Additionally, the law requires that all non-U.S. citizens, except for holders of A or G visas, report a change of address within 10 days of moving.

Please follow the USCIS instructions below before filing an Online Change of Address to ensure that you follow the correct procedures.

 

1. U.S. Citizens

 

If you have moved, and you have a pending case, you can change your address online at USCIS website. Please note that the law does not require U.S. citizens to update USCIS with their new address.

 

2. Non-U.S. Citizens

 

If you have moved, you need to follow two different steps:

  • Step 1: File a Form AR-11 (This changes your address in USCIS master database.);
  • Step 2: If you have a pending case, you must also file a Change of Address online or call National Customer Service Center at (800) 375-5283.

Please note that if you are a non-U.S. citizen and you have a pending case, you must complete both steps to make sure that you comply with the regulations and so USCIS can reach you at your correct address.
