Express mail or USPS mail ?

Hi folks,

I am ready to send the AOS papers but I have two stupid questions before sending:

1/ which option did you choose to send the papers ? the PO box or the express mail ?

I was about to send it by express mail, but when reading the k1 guides it seems to say to send it to the PO box through USPS.

Can you tell me what is the best option please ?

2/ I went to see a civil surgeon to make a I-693. Can you confirm that I dont need to provide in addition a copy of the DS-3025 as the vaccination part of the I-693 is exactly the same thing.

Thank you very much!

Ben

1) USPS Priority mail, to the PO BOX, express mail would just get it the the same PO BOX, perhaps 1 day faster.

2) If DS-3025 is properly filled out, then send it instead of the I-693, keep a copy of the DS-3025.

I've seen many people do this, and it is what I will do when the time comes; send the paperwork to the PO Box using USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation.

Best wishes!

Hi,

I sent it with USPS an delivery confirmation. It was fast enough (2 days) and not expensive.

For the medical part I just sent a copy of the DS-3025 and NOT the I-693 as the instructions says and since my vaccination was complete


Good luck on your journey

Thanks mates,

I filed a I-693 because my ds-3025 was incomplete (one vaccination was missing).

I did the the vaccination and saw a Civil surgeon to form the I-693 (which says now that I am complete).

Do you confrim that I dont need to provide the original DS-3025 as I am providing the I-693?

Thank you,

Ben

I don't think you need your original DS-3025 as the instructions (page4 of I-693 instructions) say if your DS-3025 was incomplete you need to provide I-693 part 1, 2 and 5


Good luck on your journey

Send a copy of your DS-3025 with your AOS application. The reason for that is to show that you did the medical and that it should be in your file somewhere. You don't HAVE to but I really didn't want them wondering if I had the full medical and RFE'ing me for it.
