All international students are required to maintain up to date Home Country and Current Local (Current U.S.) addresses. F-1/J-1 Regulations require you to report your new current local and home country address within 10 days moving. Failure to comply with this regulation is a violation of your immigration status and can result in the termination of your SEVIS record.
How to Write a U.S. Address
In the U.S. addresses are written in a very specific format, always written with the house or building number and the street name first, then the apartment number. The city, state and postal code (zip code) are written on a separate line. If you are unsure of your zip code you can confirm this on the U.S. Postal Services website.
