Sending Montreal Packet 3

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Canada

This probably doesn't help you since you're not in Canada, but we sent ours Canada Post on Thursday morning. Purolator said they couldn't send it because it was going to a PO Box. Not sure if UPS or FEDEX run into the same problem.

Not to hijack your thread, but did the K-3 seem a little light? I'm assuming they only wanted the checklist because they already have some of the documents, and the rest they'll only need to see at the interview. Or will they want some of the paperwork before the interview, like the police background report?

Also, what did you put on the expected entrance date to the US on the 156 form? I entered that it was pending our K-3 visa approval...hopefully that works.

Good luck and stay in touch. Looks like our timelines are very similar...

Couriers cannot deliver to a PO box, so you can only send it via postal service. If you're in the US, it'll likely take a couple extra weeks, because it'll probably get stuck at the border somewhere.

Hmmm I don't know which courier you can send it from if you're in the States :unsure: UPS?

I sent mine with Canada Post at the fastest speed (the next day) with the signature option and I was in Canada.
