Best/fastest service for sending documents internationally?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Hopefully this is posted in the right place, but I'm panicking a little bit and need some advice on where to go for the fastest delivery of some documents I need for my CR-1 visa interview in 9 days.

My wife tried posting her original pay slips a few days ago to go with the Affadavit of Support and they were returned to her today saying they were missing information on the package. I need to make sure I have the documents here in the UK for my interview next Wednesday and I want to make sure we don't have the same problem again or we're screwed.

Can anybody please advise me on the best way to make sure the documents get over here in time?!?

I don't care if it costs a lot.

The whole process has already cost a fortune so what's a little more now?

I just want to make sure I have the documents in time for the interview.

London will accept scanned and email copies of those payslips.

What else do you have as proof of income? Is she sending other things as week? Does her tax return show enough income?

We have her tax return, but she only started working in May 2014 so it doesn't give a full indication of what she currently earns.

We have over 6 months of pay slips that show she's earning enough though as well as a signed letter of employment again stating her salary.

She's been working for over a year. I'm sure it's fine.

All the I-864 evidence can be photocopies (or printed copies.) It's only the signature on the I-864 that needs to be original.

Please tell me that's going to be enough!

I feel like all our future plans are hanging in the balance of a few scraps of paper.

Man, this whole process is seriously stressful!

Yes, the employer letter you have is the proof of current income and should do just fine to supplement the tax returns. Have her scan the six months of pay stubs as extra and email or Dropbox to you to print. You don't need to spend a fortune on FEdEx etc. London is not that difficult as long as you provide the requirements which is full tax return and W2 (or transcript). And in your case the employment letter to show she earns more currently than is reflected on the tax return.

My husband just had his CR 1 interview and they didn't want to see or take any of the financial items including the actual I864 at the interview. I'm not saying you don't need them because it clearly states to bring them so I would if I were you. To answer your question, I have always used the postal service and you can send it expedited/priority international. My question for you is... What was missing that it was returned? Make sure she has your mailing address correct by typing it out exactly how you in the UK write your address. I have never had a problem getting mail and packages to my husband.
