Changing address during N-400 application/GC recall

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to sequence a few things. My husband (the GC holder) and I are moving at the beginning of July. I know we have to do the Change of Address form as soon as we do, especially since we have an N-400 pending, but I'm wondering if I should wait.

 

His GC was part of the GC recall from Feb-April 2018. He won't be able to send it back for a new one until late June (since he's been outside of the country since the recall happened!). USCIS says from the time you return the card to sending a new one will take about 3 weeks. We were going to move during that time frame, but I am worried that changing the address from our current PO Box (on file with USCIS) to our new address will cause the GC to get lost. I was thinking I'd just keep our current PO Box til the new GC comes--but it's quite far from where we're moving to!

 

Does anyone know how long it actually takes for USCIS to process a change of address form? Is it immediate? Or should I expect that any mail in process with them will take longer than 3 weeks for their systems to update the new address?

 

I hope this all makes sense!

I changed my address while in the ROC process, and I believe it was immediate, because I got a letter confirming it a few days later. I changed online.

Nice! Ok, that's comforting to know. USCIS is weird so didn't know if they'd send it to the wrong (old) one! Thanks.
