What immigration forms can you fill out online and how to do it
US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on its website updated the list of forms that are now available online. This list now includes 10 immigration forms.
Online filing allows foreigners to submit forms electronically, check the status of their case, and receive notifications from USCIS. Citizenship and Immigration Services use new technologies to meet the needs of applicants, petitioners and employees. Regardless of whether it is a paper application / petition format or electronic, USCIS strives to provide a safe and efficient process for everyone, according to the agency's website.
In addition to submitting the form online, if you immigrate to the United States as a lawful permanent resident, you must pay the USCIS immigration fee if not exempt from it. This fee can also be paid online.
Individuals can submit 10 USCIS forms online:
Form AR-11, Alien's Change of Address Card
Completing the AR-11 online form will update your address on any pending applications, petitions, or requests that you submit on the form.
You do not need to submit a paper form AR-11 unless you are a victim of domestic violence, human trafficking, or other crimes. For more information on these special situations in which you should file a paper form AR-11, visit USCIS.
Changing your address with the United States Postal Service (USPS) will not change your address with USCIS or the Office of Immigration Review (EOIR) if you have an active or pending case. Please update your address in both USCIS and USPS.
