Dear All,

I had a quick question. I am mailing out my I-751 application and the papers and all the evidence do not fit into an envelope. I went today to UPS to mail it out and they told me they dont mail out boxes to PO box addresses. I will need to go to USPS for that. I will be mailing to Vermont po box. My question is how do i mail the package out? Should I take USPS express box and also should I choose for signature required on delivery? Can someone sign if you are delivering to a po box address? If not what option should I choose to atleast have proof that my package was delivered at the po box address. Thanks in advance for your replies

USPS flat rate priority mail envelope, you can track the package. Best to use one government agency USPS to deliver to the other government agency USCIS.

And please be aware, it will be delivered, when it is delivered to the PO box the online tracking system will give an error as if missed pick-up, this IS NORMAL.

Thanks for your reply! The problem is my paperwork does not fit the envelope or so I think....It did not fit the envelope the UPS guy gave me. What other options do I have? And should I ask for signature required for delivery?

Also at vermont service center can fed ex or ups deliver it?

Then use the flat rate box.

Don't ask for signature confirmation; instead, use Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. This last is a yellow-&-white form that costs very little extra. You can track the Priority Mail delivery (to the P.O. Box) on-line.

Also, the Vermont Service Center has a physical street-address to which other services (UPS, FedEx) can ship. Look for it.

I do not think that you can send I-751 via commercial freight, on the form there is only PO box address mentioned. I will be filing in May, but I am in the same confusion...

If you need a box or a pickup truck to show USCIS that your are still married and live together, you have a big problem. My entire ROC package consisted of 17 pages, including cover letter, I-751 form, and even 3 pages of 3 photos each.

You need to provide them with some quality evidence, not drown them in a truckload of meaningless papers that belong in the shredder. That will only tick off the I.O. that has to go through your application and 15 others on that very day. He wouldn't like to work overtime because of you, I'm sure.

My advice: put your package on a diet until it fits in a regular envelope.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

I just sent my package to VT Service Center. I used the larger Express Envelope...the one that is not stiff cardboard but more like a flexible plastic-y type material. Mine would not fit in the cardboard envelope only because of the clips I used to hold my papers together. I also had Return Receipt Requested, it was delivered and signed for, no problem.

I got to thinking the same thing, our Removal of Conditions package fit nicely in a standard flat rate envelope, it included plenty of evidence for relationship.

Only thing I can see that would need a box would be getting fancy an putting it all in a 3 ring binder, which USCIS indicates to NOT DO.

I just used normal bubble mailers, sent via USPS with delivery confirmation only ( I didn't require signature or anything else). Just send to the address they provide on the form and you'll be fine. They got the package after 3 days i mailed out. and I also got approved this month. REMEMBER - USPS priority with delivery confirmation. Don't make it so complicated! GOOD LUCK ! :)
