How to include I-693 envelope to the AOS packet

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello friend. :star:

I would like to ask how you put I-693 envelope into your AOS packet.

I will have all the documents fastened with ACCO fastener, but I cannot put two hole punch I-693 envelope....

Since USCIS lost one of our docs when we applied for K1, I want to make sure the envelope is attached to other docs.

Could you please tell me how you put the envelope into your AOS packet?

Did you staple it to a sheet of paper? Did you use some sort of envelope or bag?

Thanks a lot :star:

I'd use a paperclip.

Given how easy it is for them to overlook things and issue RFEs even when they're sent it, the medical can easily drop out the packet because it's not attached to anything. I was thinking about it myself.

I attached the envelope to a sheet of paper with tape/the paper had I-693 Attached written in bold. So if something was to happen, they'd at least know it was included based on that and the cover letter.

I will have all the documents fastened with ACCO fastener, but I cannot put two hole punch I-693 envelope....

Since April 2008, the USCIS recommends to "Use paperclips when attaching supporting personal documents to forms (do NOT use “ACCO” fasteners; staples are acceptable when attaching fees)." (from the page "Tips for Filing Petitions and Applications to the National Benefit Center)

I was a little disgruntled, since I both ACCO fastener for this purpose only myself, just to find out that they don't like them anymore...

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the information.

pushbrk and Heliosphan:

Thanks for your advice. :star:

I think I will use paperclips and attach it to the sheet of paper named "I-693 attached."

Then, I will put a tape over the paperclip so that the envelope won't fall out.

Thanks for the link. :star:

I checked it and, wow they do not like ACCO fastener at Chicago Lock Box office.....

I am glad that you let me know that. I will read it carefully before I submit packet in this week.

Thanks

Nao
