Change of Address for H-1B Visa Holders

Update Your Address with USCIS

You are required to notify USCIS of any change in your residential address within 10 days of moving by completing an AR-11 “Alien Change of Address” notification, either online or by mail. (See Guidelines for Completing the AR-11.)

If your new residential address will be outside of “normal commuting distance” from the work location(s) listed in your most recent H-1B/E-3 petition, please contact an ISSS Advisor immediately. This change may be considered a substantial change that requires an amended USCIS petition to be filed.

Please contact ISSS if your U.S. residential address changes while we are preparing your H-1B/E-3/TN petition, or while your H-1B/E-3/TN application is pending with USCIS.

Update Your UMN Record

For University purposes, it is also recommended that you update your University of Minnesota record. ISSS has created instructions for updating your address that you should follow.
