Address doesn’t match Passport or Taxes

I have a bit of a confusing issue, so I’ll try to make it as clear as possible. I’m a US citizen, and have been living/married in Egypt for 2 years(husband is Egyptian). We will apply for the I-130 in Egypt via online. The issue is, all my husbands documents, passport, marriage certificate etc have his old address on it, not the one we’ve been living at. This is due to the fact most Egyptians don’t update their address on all their documents when they move because it’s a nightmare.

 When I filed my 2021 taxes I put our current address not the address that’s on all our documents. My husband received   his passport June 2022(after I filed my taxes), and it has his old address. This looks fishy as the addresses don’t match up with documents/ timeline of when we got married. I defiantly don’t want it to seem like we’re being fraudulent, but I feel it’s going to send red flags. Has anyone had a similar issue?

you are overthinking this

people move especially if renting apartment and don't own it or  house

just put current address and a good email as after the I 791 receipt,   all correspondence will come to email


u can have US address that you will live  in for the receipt as u will be needing to provide proof of  US residency to NVC later  in the process

List your husband's actual current address on the I-130 form.  Then provide his accurate address history (listing both the current and old addresses) on the I-130A form and later in the process, on the DS-260 form.


The bigger concern is whether you (the USC petitioner) have any IDs or account documents that list an address matching your husband's documented address.  Do you have documentary evidence (not US tax returns/transcripts) that shows you and your husband reside at the same address?
