Address History- what to list?


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

How detailed does my address history have to be? Does it have to be in chronological order?


I've traveled and moved around in the past few years. For example,  I moved out of one residence in China and, while in-between jobs, stayed w/ my now wife for just under a month in Germany and then stayed w/ my parents in the US for about a month, then moved to a new residence in China. Do I need to include Germany in my address history? I never used this as a mailing address, etc.


Also I use my parents' address as my USA mailing address and have stayed there several times over the past few years, usually for about a month and in-between moving residence. So do I need to list every single of the I don't know how many times I stayed there?

Every address in chronological order.   Do it in a spreadsheet because you will need it again later.


Just use Month and Year.   There can not be any gaps.

You must do it in chronological order. Be sure to list the addresses where you actually lived / worked / etc. I wouldn't go so far as to write addresses where you vacationed, but homes that were associated with actual moves. Yes, anywhere like the US, Germany, etc. that you lived must be disclosed. It seems like you're going to run out of space, so be sure to write the full entries in "additional evidence".

I learned the hard way, I hope YOU don't have to. Advice: learn, learn, learn.
