Choice Of Address And Agent: Scanned or Original Signed Copy?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I am petitioning my stepdaughter in the Philippines.

I will be emailing her the Choice Of Address And Agent document so that she can appoint me to be her agent or attorney.

Does she have to postal-mail the original copy that she signs to the NVC in the USA, or can she scan the original copy and email it to me so that I can print it out and postal-mail it to the NVC.

In other words, does the NVC want the original signed copy, or will they accept a scanned copy that has been printed out on my printer?

The document needs to be mailed by postal-mail. I don't want to chance doing email. It is not allowed for visas in the Philippines.

My question is, does my stepdaughter in the Philippines need to postal-mail the original signed copy to the NVC in the USA (takes about a month), or can she scan it, email it to me so I can print it out and postal-mail it to the NVC (takes a couple of days)?

If she mail it via 2GO (UPS) or LBC, NVC will receive it within or less than a week.

Sent my NSO marriage certificate and G-325A via 2GO (Manila to Los Angeles) and my husband got it after 4 days. (refer to my signature)

Ok, I will have her mail it to me with 2GO (UPS) or LBC.

So once I have the Choice Of Address And Agent document appointing me as agent, I can postal-mail that document along with the IV package I will be filling out for her to the NVC.

Is this how I should do it?

Or should I mail the Choice Of Address And Agent (DS-3032) document to the NVC and wait for them to accept it before proceeding with the IV stuff?

Tell your daughter to mail the DS-3032 directly to NVC.

Meanwhile, you wait for NVC to accept it then wait for further instructions. Do not send them anything unless they're asking for it.
