How to change your address with the government when you move

Last updated June 28, 2023

When you move, it is important to update your address with the U.S. government if you want to pursue your immigration case. That way, you will receive important documents in the mail such as hearing or interview notices. 

You need to update your address separately with every immigration agency you interact with. This can include one or more of these agencies: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), immigration court, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or the Intensive Supervision Appearance Program (ISAP).

If you are an ASAP member, you do NOT need to change your address with ASAP. The Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) is a nonprofit organization and is not part of the U.S. government.
