Hello,

I've finally received the last document I needed from my fiance in Thailand. Now I will get together with her cousin tomorrow (she's helping with the translations) to go over things one last time! I have a couple questions on paper size and keeping everything in order. Most of paperwork is letter size, but the paperwork from my fiance is the A4 ? size. I would think that it's not neccesary to cut down all her documents to letter size, but I've read that some have done that. What have others done? Since other countries don't use letter size, I would think that it should be ok. Also, while I won't staple the entire package, is stapling chat logs, etc., ok? I've also read that some have used binder clips for the entire package, but I'm not sure about that. I'll use some paper clips to attach some things, like the passport style photos in a plastic bag to the G 325A forms. I will put a rubber band around the whole package and then place in an envelope before putting it in the proper envelope at the USPS.

Sorry for the banter, I just want to see what others have done. It's been a long time just waiting to fix a couple things to get to this starting point...

Thank you.

Hello,

I had the same issue with the paper size. I was in Thailand and we asked if they had the 8.5x11 size and they did not. To me its the size paper they have there and the embassy surely has seen this before. I think it also shows that the document really did come from your fiance because no one uses A4 paper in the US. It is what it is. As for the binding of things together, I used staples to bind cellphone bills together and to keep multi page travel itineraries together. Although I have seen many people using paper clips instead on this visa journey. I even used a staple to attach my check to a standard piece of paper so it would not bounce around in the envelope in transit. They still cashed the check. I put the entire package in a file holder and mailed it in a padded manila envelope.

Thank you for the reply. Very true, it is what it is with the paper size. I think this has been seen before, so I'll be submitting everything as is. I think it does also show it came from her too. I'll also be keeping my logs, bills, etc. with staples as well. Once everything is set (tomorrow night), I'll place the package in a clasp envelope, then in another one (padded one - good call) at the post office.
