Packet 3 question

This is sort of a silly question, but I'm anxious about this entire process. How does Montreal send out packet 3? Do they use regular mail, do they express post it, something else? They sent me packet 3 on Friday and I really am hoping to get it soon. Thanks!

Yes, regular mail. But you can download all of the forms and have them filled out, so when packet 3 does arrive, you can turn it around the next day.

David doesn't have a printer, so I sent him blank copies of each form, plus the example forms from VJ, so he had everything filled out and ready to transfer to the forms that can with packet 3.

One can do a lot ahead of time... you will need time to gather what you'll need for the I-134.

A great marriage is not when the "perfect couple" comes together.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

Montreal prefers you don't do that, some VJ'ers have reported that when at the visa interviews, the clerk was not pleased when presented with downloaded forms. I personally printed off the forms and did a practise run filling them out, so when my packet 3 arrived, I could fill them out confidently and send it back the next day.

And yes, mine came regular mail in a white envelope. :)

You misunderstood what I wrote. We did the same as you did.

Thanks for all the replies :) I've got all the forms ready and waiting to be transferred to the one's they send, have all my evidence gathered, I-134 ready to go, basically I just need the police report(London RCMP detachment says it takes about 20 minutes) and my medical. I'm just waiting on that packet! They've already sent it to the wrong address(changed my address at the NVC level, but they didn't get it apparently), and was told they mailed it to the correct one on Friday, so hopefully it'll be in sometime this week. Silly me, I'd hoped that maybe they sent it express or something.

Good for you!! You'll be ready to turn that packet around in a day!!

You 'might' want to consider writing updated letters of intent. It's not a requirement, but it never hurts... esp if your fiance won't be at the interview with you.

Best wishes!

Thanks! I'm hoping to send the packet out right away. We actually both just updated our letters of intent, though depending on the wait for the interview, we might do it again closer to the acutal date.

An updated letter of intent actually is a requirement for Montreal. But only from the petitioner.
