Changing Addresses and Other Statistics When You're on an H-1B Visa
February 16, 2023
You might not have realized it, but when you accepted your new H-1B visa (or sponsored an employee for one), you entered a contract with the United States government. The details printed on that contract, including the employer’s name and location and the employee’s place of residence, must stay the same throughout the visa’s validity period. If something changes, it’s your responsibility to update USCIS — and they have the right to decide if your visa is still valid after those changes have occurred. This guide explains what you need to know to change your address and other statistics when you’re on an H-1B visa.
