Default Reporting Address Change after becoming Green Card Holder

After entering the US as an immigrant, I understand we need to report every time we move. My question is - do I need to report EVERY physical move? I imagine I will at first be at some hotel (say a week) then some temporary housing for a month, then finally a rented apartment which I will stay a while. So does this mean that I have to report my hotel as my address when I enter the US, then file a change of address when I move to temporary housing for a month, and then finally file another one when I rent an apt. Is this right? Sorry if this may sound silly but wanted to know if everyone is reporting such moves as it sounds we should.

Your initial address (could be hotel or temp accomodation) is already with USCIS when you filled up your I-94. After that evrey address change needs to be notified until you get naturalized. And that is the law. Most of my friends (who are by nature very conservative when it comes to US law) do this very religiously.

Thank you for your reply, but I thought that we don't need to fill in I-94 when you travel as an immigrant seeking admission at POE?

You just need to mail the AR-11 form... Its for your good only... Just mail and relax... Not much work... Not every move.. Hotel address doesn't make sense.. But send your temp address if its for more than 30 days... and you've no permanent addres in US where you can receive mails.. Otherwise give address of a friend or relative in US, if you are staying in same place... You'll be getting your first green card (actual card) at this address...
