YEA!!! K-1 Visa Petition mailed!

Finally got all our documents together and mailed off our K-1 Petition today!

I have been reading post that people are saying that it is costing them $30-40 to send certified & registered mail. I just got back from the post office and it was $10.45. Am hoping I did things right. Only thing I can see that would be a possibility for the difference in price is that my petition would not fit in a regular manila envelope, so I sent it in a Priority mail one. Priority mail being a flat rate instead of being weigh could do that I am thinking. I hope so... If that is the case, it is awesome! Another $20-30 saved just on how it is mailed.

Now the waiting starts. :)


Live for today because you never know what tomorrow will bring!

I learned the hard way never to send anything off via USPS to USCIS anymore. I prefer to spend those extra $20 but have a peace of mind. Here's my story: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/350304-lost-petition-found-and-delivered-problem/

Good luck!

Good luck on your journey! Did you write a check for $340 or $240? :)

Thanks I sent off the $340 because every Where I looked it didnt show a reduction in petition prices, just the visa price at the time of the appointment.

The difference between Priority Mail and Certified/Registered is that Priority mail is delivered within 2-3 days. Certified/Registered means that it has a tracking number in case it is lost. Also someone at USCIS must sign for it therefore you have record they ACTUALLY received it. I am sure everything will be fine with the way you sent it. You will know in the next week or so if you don't get your Notice of Approval in the mail.

Good luck to you!!! :)

I paid extra to have the priority envelope Certified & Registered so I guess I have all bases covered. :)
