Best Overnight Shipping to NSC

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: IR-5 Country: Ukraine
Timeline

While putting this Petition together, I stopped at the local Fed-Ex Center, and was told that I cannot ship overnight to the Nebraska Service Center due to the address being a Post Office Box. Maybe this has been addressed already, but does anyone have a way around it with Fed-Ex? or do I have to look to ship it with someone else?

I plan on sending it on April 10th, so I have the time now to find the correct method.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Use Express Mail from the Post Office. That is their overnight shipping method and they ship to post office boxes.

You can track it online, and the web site will even tell you who signed for it.

Thats what i did :thumbs:

If you send it priority or express mail you'll save money and it will get there just as fast. Don't sweat the delivery - it certainly won't speed things up later on! The US Postal service does just fine. Send it with delivery confirmation and then you can track it online.

If you are shipping from outside of the U.S. use EMS - (International Express Mail) - which is the same as U.S. "Global Express Mail". They are the only ones authorized to deliver to U.S. Post Office Boxes.

You can track them both on the USPS website: Track & Confirm

I sent my package on a Friday with priorty, not overnight and it got there on a Monday. I figure I'd rather save my money for a plane ticket :) Plus with NSC they still have to send it on to CSC, so you're not saving much time.

If you want to waste your money, I mean spend some additional funds then:

NOTE: If using overnight delivery by any private service provider, send your package to:

USCIS

Nebraska Service Center

850 S Street

P.O. Box 87130

Lincoln, NE 68508

I agree with other posters that USPS 2-3 day priority with confirmation is most economical.

I agree that overnight is a waste of money. In fact, they may "stall" those that don't follow the PO box instructions.

Send the package USPS Express. That is the best choice.
