I'm sorry if I've posted this in the wrong place! BUT

I recently sent my fiancee all she needs for her interview in October. However the Brazilian post office is currently on strike. Has anyone experienced this before? I'm a little concerned about how long this strike might last, and the delivery of my package.

Does anyone know if the consulate will make exceptions on original documents in cases such as this? We will be calling the consulate about this, next week. But in the meantime it would really help me sleep to know how others have responded in a similar situation. Thanks!!

Of course hindsight is always 20/20, but this is a perfect illustration of why so many people advise to use a private delivery service (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc.) when sending important papers overseas. Do not rely on the local postal system.

I take it you were unaware of the strike prior to sending the documents. Fair enough. Did you send them using a service that allows the parcel to be tracked—EMS (what the USPS calls 'Express Mail International') for example?

Improved USCIS Form G-325A (Biographic Information)

Form field input font changed to allow entry of dates in the specified format and to provide more space for addresses and employment history. This is the 6/12/09 version of the form; the current version is 8/8/11, but previous versions are accepted per the USCIS forms page.

In 1970 there was a postal strike here, quite an experience that was! The consulate will not make exceptions. DHL, Fedex will get what you need there on time and are not affected by the strike.

You would probably be better of emailing them; we never had any luck with the phone there.

NOA 2. Really?

I have a tracking number and it left miami last week. That is the last update on my tracking page.

I am now getting my employer to make a computer "print off" of my latest payments; since the paystubs are in the mail. I am having trouble finding a DHL drop of location in my area. Jackson, MS. I will most likely re-send it all using either fedex or ups. What a hassle.

I really appreciate the comments though!

I don't know if it helps you, but the Mail strike ended today and they are back to work under Judge demand. I just saw on the news that there is 15 million packages to be delivered only in São Paulo area and they are going to get it done in 5 business day.

My life is perfect now, I'm here with my love and everything is great! I feel blessed, thank you God for all your plans, they are way better than I could have ever asked for.
