Odd Question on Residency

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I submitted my 10 years residency already and currently in AP. I plan to buy a house very soon and would like to move out of my current address. I'm afraid that if I move, then it can cause some more red flags.

Do they verify where I live? I just don't know when they are going to let me know the result.

Thanks

I am in a very similar situation as you are in. I have been in AP for over 3 weeks and I still don't know for sure what to do. In fact, I passed up 2 job offers in Orlando just 1 day after I was put in AP because I was afraid that would create more red flags if I move from Miami to Orlando. We also had to submit the 10 year residency documents. Chances are if they asked for that document specifically, they are going to investigate the address. Some have suggested that if you do decide to move to a new address to give the Consulate an updated 10 year residency document with the new address. I have absolutely no idea if the Consulate will care or if they will make a big deal out of it. I looked in the AP thread to see if others went through the same thing and I was not able to find a good enough sample size to determine if this is a good idea or not. Right now I am clueless on what to do.

As for your case I would say that if it is an extreme emergency that requires you to leave your current home, then go ahead and buy the new house. But if it is not a big deal where you live right now then I would say just stay where you are. No sense in creating more worry in your mind for something like this. That's just what I would do if I were in your shoes. Good luck and please keep me updated on your progress okay? :)

Your status and my status are very much the same, we're both in AP around the same time. I'm planning on moving to the new address at the end of August, but I don't know when my AP is going to be completed.

Just notify them, you can do this on the phone and they will send you a letter in the mail, it isnt very hard, and as others have said you have every right to live your life, and if you are buying a house it seems that you are secure and stable, things that they actually want to see
