Final address listed on immigration envelope

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I got my passport back with my visa stamped in it today, with the sealed envelope.

The back if it states my final address will be in Michigan, where my wife lives, but I will be arriving in Houston, staying in a hotel as we look at properties, then moving there.

Will there be an issue with having one state as my final address and another as my port of entry?

Obviously it will be changed with uscis once we move.

Thanks alot, and good luck to anyone with an application going on at the moment. When you get that visa through - it is the best feeling!!

Ian.

your green card is going to be mailed to the address on the paperwork attached to the envelope/ to late to change it and as you don't know where you may live, get your mail picked up by family

our envelope with green card said "DO NOT FORWARD"

Try to change address if you can with immigration

Tell the immigration officer the address as they know it and tell him the circumstances / be honest

I thought it can be changed with uscis? If not, the address they have is her parents house so it's no problem.

Thanks for your help.

A majority of people will POE to a different state than the state they will live in due to flight schedules. I live in Texas but my POE was Newark, New Jersey.

Be careful with your address though. During our visa journey, we put my aunt-in-law's address for where to send the green card and SSN. Then once I entered the US, we changed that address on USCIS's website but the SSN and the green card was still sent to my aunt-in-law's address.
