What's the best way to send the packet from Sweden?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

About to send my AOS and DS-230 soon from Sweden... Anyone know the best way to send them? Regular swedish mail, Fed Ex, DHL... or something else?

Also, should would it make more sense to send them together? My DS-230 should be done tomorrow and my AOS can be sent as soon as I get my IRS transcripts any day now (hopefully). Should I wait for the AOS before I send in the DS-230?

Thanks for any and all tips!

TNT, DHL or FedEx always seem to get the job done. You can send them at the same time (as long as both the IV and AOS bills are paid) but they have different ATTN addresses so don't send them in the same envelope.

Here in Norway, FedEx two day delivery is around 800kr to the US.

I mailed my IV package on Saturday last week. I went to ICA and had it sent via Posten. I found this cardboard-y express envelope thingie at Clas Ohlson.

I sent mine with Rekommenderat (Rek) brev and I paid a little extra to get something called Mottagningsvsbevis (confirmation when the package has been delivered).

The girl said it would take 4-6 business days for the package to get there, and there was no point in using the express mail option, since that normally doesn't work anyway with mailing stuff overseas.

The package containing all my IV related documents weighed a total of 232 grams and I paid 145 SEK to have to have it shipped. A cool thing is I can track the package using an ID # and Posten's website. I will also get a note in the (snail) mail when the package has been delivered.
