Edition Date

05/16/19. Starting 07/29/19, we will only accept the 05/16/19 edition. Until then, you can use the 03/31/17 edition. You can find the edition date at the bottom of the page on the form and instructions.

Where to File

If you are in a location with a USCIS international field office: Submit Form I-407 in person or by mail to that office. Find locations at uscis.gov/international.

If you are in another location: Mail Form I-407 to the nearest USCIS international field office.

In very rare circumstances, a U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate without a USCIS international field office may allow you to submit a Form I-407 in person if you need immediate proof that you have abandoned your LPR status. The most common need for an expedited application is to apply for an A or G visa. You may also submit Form I-407 to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer at a U.S. port of entry.

Don’t forget to sign your form!  We will reject and return any unsigned form.
