Timely Change of Address Report Is Very Important

Are you a foreign student with F1 visa or visitor with any visa or even just a green card holder?

Please remember that whenever you change your address in the United States, you must report the address change within 10 days. It is a misdemeanor crime to willfully fail to provide the USCIS with a written notice of address change (Form AR-11) within 10 days after remaining in the United States for 30 days or more.

You may find the needed form here: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/ar-11.pdf and complete it before sending to

Department of Homeland Security
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
Change of Address
P.O. Box 7134
London, KY 40742-7134

(for overnight or fast freight:
Change of Address
1084-I South Laurel Road,
London, KY 40742-7134
Please check again the address within the form for updates.)
As of this writing, the filing fee is still $0.  More info can be found at

    Yes, it is very useful tip for visitors with visa or green card holders. When I talked with some friends, they did not know about this!
