Hi all,

Quick question: my fiancee is in UK and when she tried to send me her passport photo/forms for the I129-F petition, they told her it takes over a month to mail it to me. She tried rush delivery, which was supposed to be 4 days and it's been 2 weeks and now they told her it will take 1-month+.

In any case, I have all of her documents electronically, so I was wondering if I could just print out her passport photo and cut it into the right size and submit that in my packet? Or must the passport photo be the "developed" type.

That's absolutely absurd. There is no way that Royal Mail will take that long.

It takes abot 5 - 6 day for something to get from the UK to California. Did your fiancee send it recorded delivery? Check online to see its status. Always always always send so it can be tracked.

Perhaps send them again?

I scanned Karin's passport photo (taken at Walgreen's), then duplicated it several times and printed them out on a large sheet of photo-paper. I cut them to size and used them that way. Used this method not only for the petition and K-1 stage but also in the AOS stage.
