Lockbox Questions

Hi All.....

I am so very close to having the I-129F ready for mailing. Must have gone over every page a dozen times now. Help me out with this though.

In the VISA guide it says to mail the package to the Lockbox location in Dallas TX, but the example cover letter says to fill in the address of the filing location. I guess that would be the one in Texas? Right?

Then if you look at the e-notification instructions, it says there are three Lockbox locations. It lists Chicago, Phoenix, and Lewisville Texas...... but does not mention Dallas?

Thanks for the help, and I think on Monday this is going in the mail.

Lewisville is a town in the Dallas metro area. For the I-129F petition, you want to send it to the Lewisville address, where they will process payment and then forward it to either the Vermont or California Service Center for adjudication. The Chicago and Phoenix lockboxes are used for other petitions.

The example is old you do not put an address there or you put the Dallas lockbox

As mentioned nearly every day Texas does not process K-1 petitions. Only Vermont and California do.

Doesn't matter - address it to USCIS and you still won't be rejected or get an RFE. Lockbox facility is the one I'd put on the letter though.
