My concern is that if we sent the fee by Mail, how many days does it take for them to review and make it as paid?

I wonder if I do that instead of waiting for web to come to function.what if the system starts functioning and then my fee be in their mailbox :D

It'll take 30 days to be updated in the system. I spoke to an agent last Monday to inquire about sending fees via mail.

Ohh. Thanks for sharing. so it is not worth it. I hope current problem does not take that long.
