DS-2001, do I need to inform embassy of address alteration?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Just a quick one- I sent off my DS-2001 last week with my packet 3. On this form it asks for the address you would like your appointment letter sent to. I have just moved house and so I put down my new address on the DS-2001.

Does this mean I don't have to call the embassy to inform them of my address alteration? apart from mailing the hopefully approved visa back to me after the interview, a situation I assume I will be able to specify an address for at the time, I can't forsee them using my address again- OR do you think it's better safe than sorry?

Thank you for any help.

Emma

Always better safe than sorry. It doesn't hurt to give them a quick call to amend your address.

Try to inform them is my suggestion...

My fiance had moved and used his new address on the DS-2001.... but strangely enough - never got the appt letter in the post. (Now, was this because it was a new address, was it lost in the post, who knows..) Found out the appointment date by calling DOS, so were lucky in that sense...!
