Hi, whats in the AOS Packet that one should send off, I just paid my AOS fee today of $120 what do i need to send in with that.

Please help.

Thanks

I'd recommend having a look at VJ member Saylin's wiki on the NVC process, it's very thorough. Here's the link;

Hey Shippingforcast, are you sending your IV before paying the fee or will wait to pay the fee first and then sent it?

There are significant delays in the NVC invoicing the IV fee. I was personally quoted 42 days after submitting the DS-261 (Choice of Agent form) but I've seen people quoting anything from 15 to 60 days.

The NVC are currently trying to streamline their processes to deal with their backlog, so they advise to send everything in together; the IV and AOS documents regardless of whether the IV fee has been paid. I had, unfortunately, already sent my AOS documents prior to learning this, but I was advised by an NVC operator that using the bar-coded cover sheet generated when the AOS fee is paid in the IV package would be acceptable. I shipped mine today. I haven't been invoiced for the IV yet.

I'm looking to do the same thing come Monday. So did you prepare each separate package and include the AOS barcoded cover sheet in each package?

I sent off my AOS first because we didn't know any different. The NVC rep just told us to put the AOS bar coded sheet into the IV package and send it in. I imagine if you're sending them together you'd prepare both packages and then ship them together in a larger envelope.

I will point out though that I've seen users stating they were advised to do different things by different NVC reps. To ensure we don't get a checklist for the IV package, I wrote a cover letter that listed the documents enclosed and pointed out that the AOS bar-coded sheet is included "at the advice of an NVC rep in a phone call made on the 4th of December at 2:30pm EST".
