Possible to send AOS and IV stuff in same package via DHL?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have to resend the IV app with modified answers as well as supporting docs for the AOS. Originally, we sent these in separate packages through DHL. They cost $75 each. Is it possible to send them in one package or do we need to do them separately again? Just trying to save $75 if possible...

Sure you can send together. Just make sure they have their separate bar-coded coverpage.

you can send them in one package if you want and it is fine. i did that when I filed for my mom last year and it worked out great...no false check list for the other or things like that. Just make sure you seperate the IV and AOS in separate envelopes before you package it. I am waiting for my IV tbill to be sent so I can send mine in the same package again.

If I may ask, why use DHL? USPS is pretty reliable( esp for domestic next day delivery)and it cost lesS than $20.

USPS EXPRESS MAIL that is...

oh! it appears you live outside the U.S.?

No problem there just make sure they are bundled together with correct cover-page (you know they are lost without the cover-page).
