Notice above Address Changes: AR-11/Change of Address
All non-U.S. citizens, including lawful permanent residents, are required to notify DHS of changes of address within 10 days of such change, using Form AR-11. Additional information on the address reporting requirement is available on the government website at: https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=coa. Failure to comply with the address change notification requirements may affect one’s ability to remain in the United States, may affect your ability to re-enter the United States after travel abroad, and may be criminally punishable as a misdemeanor with a fine not to exceed $200 and/or imprisonment of not more than thirty days. Therefore, it is imperative that you follow the address change notification requirements, and we recommend that you make a copy of your address change form and other pertinent documents in the event that the government alleges that you failed to comply.
Notice About Visa Processing at the US Consulate Abroad—Extra Time for Administrative Processing:
In the case that the consular officer determines that the visa cannot be issued due to additional clearance needs as a result of your involvement in court proceedings, arrests, or other law enforcement issues, you will potentially be placed in administrative processing, which can delay visa issuance by up to 60 days or more. Should you have such concerns relating to law enforcement issues, including minor traffic violations, please contact us prior to travel to discuss.
