Just wondering what kind of envelope everyone used, and how it was sent.

I've got butterflies in my stomach now that we're ready to send in the K-1 Petition. :P

Thanks to all who've helped out along the way with their answers to my questions. I can't wait to start a timeline too.

Moved from Working and Travelling before getting a Green card forum to K-1 Visa forum as relates to starting the K-1 visa process.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Manila Envelope - 10" x 13" Moisture Seal Recycled Envelope - Office Depot. Sent USPS Certified Mail Return Receipt Requested.

DO NOT send USPS Certified or Registered Mail. This slows it down. It took seven days for mine to arrive to the same state. Your options should be USPS Priority Mail Return Receipt Requested or Fed Ex overnight with tracking that is very cool.

Good luck.

I folded my entire petition into a large stylized paper airplane, and then tossed it in the general direction of the eastern seaboard. Apparently my aim was good, or a I just make one hell of a paper airplane.

Of course, I included tabs for the sake of organization.

It hasn't speeded up the processing time, but I hope to get a star next to my name for creativity.

I used USPS Priority Mail in one of the flat rate envelopes. It got there in 2 days and I got to watch it every step of the way.

For our I-129F K-1 petition, I believe my then-fiance (now husband) sent it via USPS Priority Mail to the California Service Center - it got there in 3 days. :)

For our AOS packet, we sent it via USPS Express Mail with Return Receipt (mail, not electronic) to the Chicago Lockbox - it got there in 2 days but we didn't receive the Return Receipt until after a month after - the NOAs came a LOT faster. LOL. Delivery Confirmation is still the best choice so you can track it online. XD

I used combinations of regular and large sized paper clips and small, large and one very very large binder clip to hold the documents together.

Then the whole mess went into a USPS Tyvek large Priority envelope for Priority mailing (no signature requrested but has online tracking.).

FedEx 2 Day Air envelope. I put the packet in their flimsy envelope and then fit it in the sturdier cardboard envelope. It got there the next day. I was told by a vendor here at work that even if you ship something for 2 day, if the recipient receives a large volume from FedEx, they'll just put it on the same overnight shipment as the next day airs. I took his advice and he was correct.

We got a flip file and categorised every form. it makes it look neat and I'm sure helped in making our approval quicker because it was easier to read
