Permanent Residency

USCIS Address Change Requirements

All aliens (including Permanent Residents) in the United States who are required to be registered under the law (INA § 262 and 261) must keep UCIS informed of their changes of address. The only aliens exempt from this requirement are diplomats (visa status A), official government representatives to an international organization (visa status G), and certain nonimmigrants who do not possess a visa and who are in the U.S. for fewer than 30 days (INA § 263). UCIS requires reporting of any address change within 10 days of the change of address. The address reported must be a physical address of residence, not a PO Box or office/university address.

Again this includes all Permanent Residents. UCIS recently issued new guidelines regarding filing the Change of Address form. For more information please go to:
