Reporting U.S. Address

All non-immigrants are legally required to report all US address changes within 10 days of moving. Failure to do so could jeopardize their status.

U.S. government can only deliver official cards (i.e. Employment Authorization Document, Permanent Residency Card or Social Security Card) if the recipient’s name is labeled on the mailbox.

Use the following chart to determine the appropriate address reporting requirements.
