Abandonment of Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) Status

USCIS Announces New Filing Location for Submitting Form I-407

Beginning July 1, USCIS will no longer accept Form I-407, Record of Abandonment of Lawful Permanent Resident Status, at international field offices by mail or in person.

What You Need to Know

Individuals who wish to voluntarily record abandonment of their lawful permanent resident (LPR) status must submit Form I-407 via mail to:

USCIS Eastern Forms Center

Attn: I-407 unit

124 Leroy Road

PO Box 567

Williston, VT 05495

We anticipate that processing times at the Eastern Forms Center, from receipt to completion, will be within 60 days, which does not include mailing time to or from abroad.

In very rare circumstances, a U.S. embassy, U.S. consulate, or USCIS international field office may allow an individual to submit a Form I-407 in person if he/she needs immediate proof that he/she has abandoned LPR status. The most common need for an expedited application is to apply for an A or G visa. Individuals may also submit Form I-407 to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer at a U.S. port of entry.
