PO box and address is different cities

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Pretty much what the topic says. should i cater to one over the other? do i need to put po box address in all 3 sections (2 on I129F one on G325A)? the first page of the I129F has a postal code section, someone suggested to me to put the po box info there, including city.

I want to make sure the consulate knows where to send what she needs and still put the right info.

can i just use the po box address on all areas?

is my question not understood?

i'm guessing i should just put the city (really a small town outside of the city) as i think it's more important for her to get the packet. am i wrong?

Just do what you think makes the most sense. You could even write "see Appendix A" and include a sheet of paper titled Appendix A and explain the address situation.

You need to figure this stuff out, we can't hold your hand through everything.

wow, i came for some advice as many others do here every day. i've researched for almost a year and found answers myself to all the hard things before even starting this visa process. it's these small confusing things i need help getting answers to. i've asked relatives, called the uscis (they are no help) searched these forums, and hear a lot about rfe's. I've had long talks with the fiances and ever her brother who's po box this is. the brother and i had just finished with an hour long talk before i had posted. if i had a solution that i thought "made sense" i would have done that obviously. i don't want to mess this up, i want things to go as smoothly as possible. these forms aren't exactly super clear, and i don't want to falsify any info, so i don't understand the condescending tone about me holding my hand through everything. i'm using this forum as a last resort for information. about "figuring this stuff out", that is exactly what i'm trying to do. why would this forum exist if everyone just said things like that. I'm trying to do what i think makes the most sense, but i'm also concerned about that being wrong.

I'm an adult, you are an adult, i'm sure you had questions too that may not have seemed too difficult to some. Please watch the non helpful condescending tone as if i was a child. with that said, thank you for the appendix suggestion.

I was having a similar issue, my "physical" address is not my postal address becasue of a PO Box..

I spoke with USCIS about this and was told that the POSTAL address is the important one, in order for you to receieve correspondence from them.

See my thread here.

I included in a cover letter that my postal address is different from my physical address and put the postal address onto all of my forms.

good luck.

Nick
