AOS and IV package sent separate or together

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I sent the DS 3032 email but AOS bill hasn't been generated yet.

Should AOS and IV packets be mailed separately or together?

Basically I know that AOS and IV bills be invoiced on different dates.

But I want to know if I should pay AOS bill and mail the paperwork for that

and then pay IV bill and mail the paperwork for that - meaning 2 separate mail packages sents on different dates?

or it is recommended to wait and mail both AOS and IV packets together.

Thank you.

We did too. I don't think it matters either way.

It depends on you. you can mail each package as soon as their payment status shows up as PAID, or you can wait for the IV fee to show as PAID before sending them together. But if you do send them together, they would have to be in separate envelopes/folders/whatever you use to separate them.

Do they go to the same address or different address?

Thanks.

If ATTN is different then it is a different address. Consider you send both together. Only one gets to correct desk. Now you are counting on the generosity and goodwill of an employee of the NVC to route and send the other package correctly and in a timely manner. That employee might not be in a hurry. Your package could (IMHO) be slowed by not sending to correct ATTNs.

Oh okay, my mistake. Same building, different dept. We sent our packages to their respective addresses as stated on their barcoded cover sheets. What i previously meant by sending them together was bringing all those packages to usps the same day and sending them out the same time and pay only once, as opposed to sending aos as soon as aos status becomes paid, and then wait for iv status to become paid before sending iv package.

Probably work in same, but getting really cautious when dealing with immigration people.

I will be so happy when journey complete.
