Sending Personal Belongings

Hi all

Firstly, I'm sorry if I'm going over old ground here but the information I've read isn't clear to me.

I'm flying on a K1 visa on the 20th of April - Yippee! I'd like to send my few boxes of belongings on the 19th. I understand that there is a form CBP Form 3299 to fill in - OK so far - but I've read somewhere that you need to also attach copies of the visa and I-94. That can't be right can it as I wont have an I-94.

I'm very confused, I thought it would be simple DHL'ing my meagre possessions! Can someone please give an idiots guide to sending my stuff?

Thanks in advance, Anita

Hmmmm, I may not be the best person to answer this post, as I am unaware of the things you have listed in order to send over your belongings? However, I am in the process of having 7 boxes shipped to myself from the U.K to the states. I shipped with Anglo Pacific and they sent me a bunch of forms to fill out - from customs forms to Power of Attorney. I listed the visa I am here on and when I arrived, and why I came here (to marry a U.S citizen), but it didn't seem to go into much more detail about that aspect. There was more focus on the customs forms.

Anyhow, it cost a HUGE amount, and it will take from 6 - 12 weeks to get here. Over 500.00 pounds and I sacrificed a lot of stuff.

I hope that helps in some way? I am sure someone will answer you question more directly than me, but I thought seeing as I am going through that right now too, it may help? Maybe it's different as I am having them shipped while I am all ready out here?

Good luck!

I shipped my stuff just before I left the UK and it arrived a little while after I arrived in the US. I did have to provide a photocopy of my passport bio page and my visa. No I-94. If you have any questions you should be able to seek clarification from the shipping company, in your case DHL.

Thanks for that. It's a lot clearer now! Phew, something less to stress about. Just got to find my scales so I can weigh my boxes haha.
