I had my Tmobile bill and credit card statement accepted as US address proof.

Thanks @ankit_mehta for sharing the info. I will update the article to reflect it.

Hi Ankit,

I just moved to a new house with my husband where I don’t have any utility bill in my name other than internet bill. Only I have escrow title company papers that are in the names of both of us. My passport is expiring in December 1st week. what’s the best can I do?

As @ankit_mehta shared above, CKGS is accepting mobile and internet bills as address proof. You can use it.

What if parents stay with us and what type of us address proof they can accept

Hi @Aslam_Mohammed
Parent should have some kind of address proof from the list above.
They can opt for drivers license or a state ID if nothing else is available.

Hi @Anil_Gupta,
Are you sure that they accept learner’s permit as residence proof? It’s only a slip of paper with some details on it.

Hi @Prakarsh_Upmanyu
One person confirmed it earlier that CKGS accepted his learners driver permit.

Thanks. I hope it works for me too.

Hi Anil,

I have a state ID for my address proof. But in my state ID my last name has a dash “Venkatesh-Babu” instead of “Venkatesh Babu” and all my other legal documents have “Venkatesh Babu”. When I asked this to the DMV they said they cannot insert space in the last name and they could only do it this way. Will this be a problem?


Hi @darshan

A dash should not be an issue.

Thanks man, I really hope so as I do not have any other address proof other than my bank statement

Due to COVID-19 leasing offices are closed and we have electronically signed the lease. Would electronically signed(DocuSign) lease documents as US address proof be accepted?

Hi Anil,

Can we submit Tax Return document (Form 9325 / Form 1040) as a US address proof?

If the tax return document has the filing date within last 3 months, then it should be acceptable.

Hi Anil,

Thank you for your response. It is specifically one of these 2 or both.
