Questions before sending packages for IR5 case

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Vjrs

I'm almost ready to send the DS230 and I864 packages to the NVC but I still have a few questions:

How many pictures do I enclose??? 2 or 4?

I am the petitioner, do I add my birth certificate?

Could I send the packages via Express mail??

And can you please confirm the NVC address?

Thanks for all your help

The beneficiary needs to include 2 pictures in the IV package.

The petitioner does not need to include their birth certificate in an IR-1/CR-1 case.

You can send the packages however you wish.

The NVC addresses are on the respective bar-coded cover sheets.

One more question,

Do I wait until the payment process status says PAID in order to print the cover sheet, right?

No, you can print out the cover sheet now. You just have to wait for it to show PAID before sending in the packages.

You should check out the first two posts in this thread: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/354975-nvc-filers-march-2012/

Oh, yes, mis-read the title of this topic, thought it said IR1, not IR5.

In that case, yes, the petitioner's birth certificate is required in the IV package. Also required: petitioner's current and previous marriage certificates.

They have to be originals/certified copies. And if you want the documents back, include a photocopy as well.

I'm in tears right now, I did not include my birth certificate on the package that I mailed on 3-30, for sure I will get a RFE and it will delayed my case!!!

Get the birth certificate ready to go and print out the bar-coded cover sheet from the payment portal for the IV package. Have everything ready to go. It won't delay your case by much.
