German citizen living in Canada... which address to use?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all together,

I am very glad to be part of this community now :)

And I would like to start with a first question (I am sure a lot of other questions will come up... aaahhh!!)

Our situation is the following:

I am German citizen and for 2 years I am living in Quebec, Canada.

I have an apartment here (even though I will have to move in 2 months and don't have my new apartment and address yet), but I am still registered in Germany (under the address of my dad).

Now we started filling all the forms and we were wondering which is the right address to use?

Should I use the German address because I am German, or is it better to use the Canadian one because I actually live there?

Will they actually send anything to me so I might have problems when I can't access mail immediately?

And if we use my Canadian address, do we have to change it in the process as soon as I move?

Thanks to you all!

Have a great day and happy eastern!

If you are a legal resident in Canada you can use a Canadian address.

When you move assuming it's still within Canada you will have to change your address.

Thank you!

I actually should mention that I have a temporary work permit in Canada.

So I am not permanent resident, but I am legal.

That's fine then. You just wouldn't be able to interview from there if you obviously we're not legally residing there.

But you are so just treat it as your home country!

If you are moving back to Germany use the German address as mailing addres, however the Canadian address will have to be listed as addresses where you've lived anyway. I fyou are worried about anything USCIS mails within the first few months of the process don't be, it will all go to the USC petitioner's addres in the US.

If you should be in Canada for the interview then use your Canadian address. As long as you dont move to Manitoba and west you should be interviewing in Montréal.
