AR-11, Alien’s Change of Address Card

File Online

Most individuals can change their address in two ways:

  • Through your existing USCIS online account if you filed your form online; or  
  • Filing Form AR-11, Alien’s Change of Address Card, online.

Filing Form AR-11 online will update your address on all pending applications, petitions, or requests that you include on the form.

You do not need to mail a paper Form AR-11 if you use the change of address webpage unless you are a victim of domestic violence, trafficking, and other crimes, or if you have previously filed a Form I-751 abuse waiver. For more information on these special situations in which you must file a paper Form AR-11, see our Change of Address webpage.

We strongly encourage you to update your address with USCIS to ensure you receive all correspondence and benefits from us in a timely manner and avoid possible delays related to your case.

Changing your address with the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) will not change your address with USCIS, or the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) if you have an active or pending court case. Please update your address with both USCIS and USPS (and EOIR if you are in immigration proceedings).
