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. 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
The processing time from receipt to completion is estimated to take less than 60 days.
Traditionally, the Form I-407 was accepted by U.S. embassies and consulates directly by walk-in or by mail. This notice states that U.S. embassies and consulates will no longer accept Form I-407 except in rare circumstances, in person, and if an individual needs immediate proof that they have abandoned LPR status.
