Hi there! My husband is currently on a visit in Sweden (not a residence)and we are about to file our i-130, since he is just a visitor here, we have to file our i-130 to chicago lockbox still. Right when we were suppose to do that we heard that UCSIS do not accept any applications sent from abroad, even though he is not a resident they will send it back cause its not sent within the states? Its sounds unbelieveble but is it true? Can we not send an application from sweden? If we do, is there any particular mailcompany (like DHL) we have to use?

Thank you!

why don't you send your I-130 package to one of your husband's friend or family in US and have them forward the package to USCIS via USPS? It seems like that will solve your problem.

The package can be sent from anywhere in the world, it just needs to have the correct postage. A P.O. Box can't tell where a letter arrive from, but because it is coming from out of the country, it maybe scanned and held up in customs for extra scrutiny. It may not arrive at it's designation in a timely manner.

They will accept it, but your husband will need to provide a US mailing address within the forms for them to send paperwork to.
