DS-230 package, EMS label

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone with IR1/CR1 petition in Guangzhou, China, help me?

Within the Applicant Document Process (DS-230) package from NVC, there is an "IV Instruction" from Guangzhou Consulate. It says I only need to return DS-230 part I and a mailing address label to NVC. Nothing more, right?

The address label is an EMS label from China Post Office. How do I get it here, online? Or do I have to ask my spouse to send one from China (that's a pain and takes long time)? How did you guys handle this??

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your help.

i am really confused by you. You are IR1/CR1 petition, right?

for your question about "The address label is an EMS label from China Post Office. How do I get it here, online? Or do I have to ask my spouse to send one from China (that's a pain and takes long time)? How did you guys handle this??" Sorry i really don't understand.

Where is the petitioner, in US OR in CHINA? And where is the beneficiary in US OR in CHINA?

If the beneficiary were in China, (chinese applied for USA VISA), of course you have to go to China Post Office to send back the forms, and you also have to get or pay 1 rmb to buy an extra EMS label, and write down your address as recipients, and NVC address showed on instruction as sender. because this extra EMS label is for NVC will send you the 4th package, which means interview package.

hope you can understand now.

I just noticed that conflict on the OF-169. It say on the main instructions not to send in the supporting documents at this time, which is normal, but on the Mailing Address Label section it does say to send it. I just double checked and you do need to send the EMS label now to NVC. You need to go to a China Post office and get a domestic EMS label. Follow the instruction on OF-169 when filling it out.

Thanks eileenho :star: . I am clear now and will get a EMS label from China.

JBHypno, did you find out where should we send the 2 passport photos of beneficiary on OF-169 for IV? We had discussion of this on another thread on this forum. I am wondering if the passport photos should be sent to NVC along with DS-230 Part I OR they need to be brought to interview later by the beneficiary. It is very confusing on OF-169.
