I used FedEx for all my USCIS/NVC stuff. It wasn't that costly and I could track it..even see who signed for it. Any of the carriers are ok as long as you have confirmed delivery good.gif

I sent mine in a flat-rate express mail envelope. The post office clerk said it couldn't get any faster than that (unless you went to FedEx) but priority would cost about twice as much. You can track it online and print a delivery confirmation for your records. With this option the package gets from IA to CSC in 1-2 days, which for me was good enough.

Your best bet for Tunisia is USPS. Although FEDEX and UPS will claim to get it there faster, they don't. The problem arises once it gets to the airport and how long it sits there, how long it takes go from processing to the town, and how long it takes for the post office to bother notifying the recipient that they have mail to come and pick up.

When I send mail from the East coast, USA to Jendouba, Tunisia it takes on average 12-14 days to arrive. I would use USPS and get a confirmation tracking number which will at least allow you to track it until the moment it arrives in the Tunis Carthage airport.

Don't waste your money with the huge fedex/ups up-charges. When it arrives in Tunis through them, it's turned over to regular Tunisie Postal Service just like USPS.

Just got the delivery confirmation for the flat-rate express (with signature & exact delivery time) - it got to the California Service Center in less than 48 hours. Total cost was under $20 and I sent a big pile of paper to them good.gif
