You can change your address here: https://www.uscis.gov/ar-11   Other than changing your address there, I'm not sure how to ensure your GC will go to the new address.  You can try forwarding all your mail to your new address, but I don't know if they will forward that type.....Good luck.

If you are entering the United States on an immigrant visa, we will mail your Green Card to the mailing address in the U.S. you provided at the time of your immigrant visa interview or when you were admitted entry into the United States. 

 

At POE, do immigrants usually provide an address as well where they wish for thier GC to be sent? 

 

Im so lost🙁

Yes, you can ask for an address change there at POE.....

You can do that.......Your I-551 stamp in your passport will serve as your Green Card until you pay the $220 fee and receive your plastic card.

When paying your green card fee you will be given an option to change or edit address. Even after you pay you can edit the address.

Since your visa has already been issued, you should provide your new address to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer who admits you to the United States

 

HI all. Above is the reply from USEM SG where i did my interview. May I know if anyone here has successful received their GC when they updated it when they paid the IV Fee before entering US (and not after or not at CBP) thanks a lot
