DHL waybill BEFORE interview?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Sorry if this question has already been covered...

Does my fiance need to bring a DHL airway bill to his interview (for k1 fiance visa) in Moscow?

I am confused because here it says "In accordance with the immigrant visa process" one must go to DHL before the interview and pay for visa delivery (sucks if you're denied - having already paid! Does this apply for K1 visa applicants or for some other types of visa?

If he does need to go purchase it prior to interview, does anyone have experience with any of the DHL offices in Moscow? Which ones - if any - do you suggest? And just how long did it take your fiance to get it? Since Russian post office lines, especially in Moscow, can range anywhere from 10 minutes to 10 hours waiting, it'd be nice to know which are *usually* the faster ones.

Thanks!

At long last, this highly stressful leg of our journey has come to a close - for now - and we couldn't be more grateful and appreciative for all the tremendous help and support here on VJ! Without VisaJourney I doubt we would be where my husband and I are today! Thanks to all!

Everyone in the last 5 years or so who has gotten a K1 visa has gone through DHL in Moscow. So yes people have experience with that. Your packet will tell you all their address and so will their website. In my opinion they are all the same since they are all servicing one company. The key factors in choosing the right office is the convenience of location and their hours of operation. If you choose to do DHL office delivery then it does get sent to just one office. And yes you must get the paid slip before you go to the interview.

"The key factors in choosing the right office is the convenience of location and their hours of operation."

Exactly! Which is half the reason I asked my question.

So... which office in Moscow have people used? Did they have your mail/package? Unreliable/relaible? Was it slow, quick, simple, difficult,etc?

I'd like to know because I am sending some last-minute doc's directly to DHL in Moscow and don't want to end up addressing it to the most hellish dhl office in Moscow and have my fiance not get the packet on time.

Better check your local DHL office as many of them here in the US have closed or are closing since DHL stopped its domestic delivery service.

DHL sends to home address. Just DHL to his flat.

DHL offices are not the same as the Russian Post. The office doesn't matter they will use teh paid way bill, the DHL guy picks its up from embassy and delivers it to the address on the waybill.

This information comes in the K1 packet your fiancée will receive or already has in her possession. Talk to her.

It sounds to me that you are actually sending something by DHL rather than waiting for the embassy to send the visa to your fiancée. I don't think too many folks on here did that.

All of us used DHL for visa delivery and few used it for anything else. And we only did the former because the embassy required it. As far as DHL losing stuff or being slow at one office and not another, that is complete nonsense. They are all the same for the exception of hours and location.

As for visa delivery, because we did this back in September of 2004, I could not tell you which office we used. But I do remember we paid for the air bill for the office closed to the embassy, which was inside a beautiful glass mall and picked up the visa at the office closet to the Red Square because it was the only one that allowed for office pickup. But the staff at the first office explained all this to us.

There is a DHL office in a little mall about 1 or 2 blocks from the consulate, and that's the office we used. When the visas were finally released, we took the metro/bus out to the main DHL shipping facility and picked up the visas ourselves, instead of waiting for delivery.

All of the info (addresses/phone numbers) is on the DHL website.
