Hello all, sorry, I'm just needing a little clarification because I'm a little confused after reading different things. Can I live in Nashville, TN, and my fiance lives in Thailand. I've made a huge packet up, and I was going to drive it to my Memphis USCIS office on Wednesday. Should I mail it to this Vermont place instead??? What's the procedure here. What will get things done the fastest (or has the most probability of doing so?) Thanks!!!

This is the fastest way to do it, and it's the correct location to send my package? My package is in one of those huge 2" binders, do I just package it up and ship it? Is one shipping method going to get it processed any faster? Would it be any faster to deliver it in person to Memphis, or do they not even accept them there??? Thanks!

Do not drive it in.

You won't be allowed into the building, you've no appointment letter to show the security guards

and

'drop off' isn't allowed, anywhere in the USA.

Thanks for the direct answer, I appreciate it.

Now, I just need to know: Is one faster than the other?

edit: and also, just to be absolutely clear, I mail the WHOLE package, right? The huge 2" binder...? Just want to be absolutely certain I'm getting it right :). Thanks for all the help!

edit2: And if I'm mailing it, do I just put the money order inside the binder???

Staple or paper clip the money order to the front page of the I-129F petition. Possibly you could staple or paper clip it to the cover page of the cover letter. They don't really need the 2" binder. They will take it all out, use an ACCO 2 hole punch and make their own file. Just slip it into a manila folder or entire package into a manila mailing envelope.

I do not understand the question "Is one faster than the other." There is no other because you cannot drive it over nor walk it in. All you can do is a) Mail it in or b) Fed Ex, DHL, UPS it in.

Good luck.

Trying to get it there "faster" won't make any difference during the months long process. If it gets there a day or two earlier, it can still sit on a shelf for months before it's looked at. Send it whatever way is the cheapest but still certain. USPS is pretty good at that.

Ain't that the truth!

I laugh at myself now for even wondering if I should send it USPS or FedEx/UPS. The 2 day difference in arrival at VSC has meant nothing in this 4-month ordeal..

Eddie - strongly suggest you 'wait a day' prior to mailing -

and during that day -

find out the exact address to send it in -

Things have changed recently, is now a lockbox address in Texas.

Thanks for all the replies. I don't have any personal checks, but I could get a money order. Do I make it out to the place that I'm mailing it to, or just USPS?

You make it out to the United States Department of Homeland Security. I suggest you take a look at the guides and the instructions on the I-129F.

Thanks for all the replies, I'm sorry, I know that some of the things were covered in the guide, but I was confused by conflicting information that I had found in different places. I had read that I could mail it in, but I also thought that I could bring it in as well. Also, there were two different places for mailing it, so I didn't know if they had different processing times or not. I just wanted it to go as quickly as possible. Thanks for all the help, I appreciate it!
