ORR advises refugees of the legal requirement to do three things: 1) apply to USCIS to adjust their status to Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) after one year in the U.S. in refugee status, 2) advise USCIS prior to travel outside the U.S. so they can be issued the Refugee Travel Document, and 3) report their change of address to USCIS.
