Change of Address Requirement (Statuses other than F, M or J)
All non-U.S. citizens are required to report a change of address to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) within 10 days of the change. This requirement applies to all non-U.S. citizens who intend to stay in the United States for more than 30 days.
- Individuals in non-immigrant visa statuses other than F, M or J (e.g. H-1B, H-4, TN, TD, B-1, or WB): If you move, you must notify USCIS of your new address using Form AR-11.
Form AR-11 may be completed and submitted electronically at https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=coa.
Make a photocopy of the completed form for your records and email a copy of it to firstname.lastname@example.org
USCIS has not provided comprehensive instructions on completing Form AR-11. Some of the questions are confusing and have not been clarified by USCIS. As far as ISSS can tell, the form will be most useful to USCIS if you provide information in the following way:
"I am in the United States as"
- If you are an H-1B temporary worker, TN, B-1 visitor for business, adjustment applicant, O-1 individual of extraordinary ability, or in another nonimmigrant status, check "other" and write in your visa type.
- If you have not applied for a green card, you will most likely not have an "A" number so just leave the "A" number blank.
"Port of entry into the U.S."
- This should be your most recent port of entry as stamped on your Form I-94 or in your passport.
"Date of entry into the U.S."
- This should be the date of your most recent entry as stamped on your Form I-94 or in your passport.
"My stay expires on"
- This should be completed with the end date listed on your Form I-94 card
