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 submitted an application to USCIS, such as an asylum application or work permit application:
- If you have a case in immigration court:
- If you submitted an appeal to the BIA after an immigration judge denied your case:
- If you have check-in appointments with ICE or ISAP:
- You can update your address in person during your next check-in, using the online tool to update your address with ICE, or by phone at 833-383-1465.
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.
