10 days is the time frame for notifying USCIS of a change of address
10 days is the time frame for notifying USCIS of a change of address. All non-U.S. citizens who are required to be registered are also required to keep the USCIS informed of their current address. The penalties for failure to give written notice of moving to the new address are: 1) misdemeanor crime (fine up to $200.00 and imprisonment up to 30 days or both), 2) may be subject to removal proceedings, 3) may jeopardize ability to obtain a future visa or other immigrant benefit.
Change of address requirements are met by completion of USCIS Form AR-11 online or by mail. If completed by mail it is recommended that it be sent via certified mail, return receipt requested. If you have a pending or recently approved application you must also change your address online using the “online change of address” system by USCIS or by phone (1-800-375-5283). ( This method of changing addresses is different for VAWA, T and U visa holders.)
US Citizens are not required to file Form AR-11 and can make a change of address on pending cases online or by calling 1-800-375-5283. The only US citizens required to notify USCIS of change of address are those who have previously submitted Form I-864 for someone who became a permanent resident. If you have previously submitted form I-864 you must complete a form I-865 within 30 days of completion of your move.
The address reporting requirement should not be confused with renewal or replacement of lawful permanent resident cards (green cards) via Form I-551.
