United States (U.S.) immigration regulations require “non-citizens” in the U.S. (other than diplomats on “A” visas or international organization representatives on “G” visas) who are present in the US for more than 30 days to register any change of address with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) formerly Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) within 10 days of the change of address. This is particularly important for students in F-1 visa status who may lose their visa status if they do not follow this directive.
If you are an international student in F-1 or J-1 status and you move (or about to move) to a new address, you must notify USCIS within 10 days. In order to notify the United States Imigration you must log in to myIPFW and complete the following steps
Additionally, you must stop by the Office of International Education office to report the new address so that OIE will report your new address to SEVIS/USCIS.
