This NAFSA Practice Advisory reviews the requirements that nonimmigrants must carry their Form I-94, and lawful permanent residents must carry their Form I-551 (green card), and both nonimmigrants and lawful permanent residents must report address changes to DHS within 10 days of the address change. Failure to do so can lead to severe consequences. Although these requirements have been law for many years, many individuals might not be aware of them, or may need to be reminded of them.
