Not sure about Vietnam but I recently sent documents to Brazil by way of USPS express mail. Arrived safely in 4 business days for $28.00. Good luck

many have used USPS to VN but that calls for reliance on the VN postal service... not 100% reliable...

+1 on Viet Kieu Express or Fed-Ex

I used UPS once. The documents got held up in customs for a week. Maybe it was a one time deal, but I never used them after that. I used Viet Kieu or Fed-ex.

That is my preferred option, but I do not know any one that I trust that is going to Vietnam before her interview.

UPS suck in vietnam. my uncle had a business that required shipping samples from us to vietnam for a year+...most of the UPS stuff was held in customs....and you had to pay the customs people to expedite the process. usps has always worked well for me, or better yet here in OC they have shipping agents back there and it only takes 3-5 days to HCM.

I do not know if it has been said or not, but if it is only paperwork, or things that are flat and the originals are not needed, scan and email it. If it is just interview prep things scan and send, if they require the original with a signature, then use DHL. DHL is by far the best (biggest) shipper in Vietnam. UPS and FED EX are here, but not as big as DHL. IF it requires a signature or an original and you are making the original, IE bank statement or intent letter, make two when possible, this is just incase they do lose the original you already have a second one waiting. Even DHL can have a mistake or have a package ruined. Other ways are finding out who is headed to Vietnam and send the paperwork with them and give them your partners number so that she can meet up and collect. I personally would try this method before sending with DHL. Hope this helps Jerome
