Incorrect postal code

I have just found out from my fiancé (via an email with all the back-and-forth between him and the VAN consulate today) that they have my postal code ending with QA3 instead of 0A3.

Will VAN look at the documents that *I* wrote to find the mailing address?

Will the PO send it back or do you think that they will realise that it has to be a zero and not a Q?

I would think that the post office would figure it's a zero instead of a Q since that character is supposed to be numerical. But who knows, Canada Post sucks.

Have you or your fiance asked Vancouver to send a 2nd packet 3 with the correct postal code?

I would definitely second the suggestion to call up the consulate and ask them to update your address and send out another packet 3.

I moved back before our I-129F was even approved by the CSC and, despite all attempts to update my address at that stage, by the time it got to Montreal they still had my old address on the forms. Brian had contacted the NVC prior to Montreal receiving the file and we knew they had the wrong address still, so as soon as we knew Montreal had it, I called them and explained the situation. The lady I spoke to updated my address right that minute and told me they would send out a second packet 3 that same day.

So definitely call Vancouver and hopefully they can do the same for you!

I would definatly call the Consulate and just ask them to send out another Packet 3. I PM'd the number to you with the extention. They are really nice and I am sure there will not likely be a problem. That might be the fastest way to get it.

Guess what? The postal code is the hold up for pkt3. I called Canada Post and asked. While I was on hold with them, I checked my email and VAN had emailed me back---with Packet3 attached as an MSWord document!

So, my next question is (but, it's rhetorical): if they can email a document instead of snailing it, why don't they request email addresses on the I129f? And, thinking further on it, perhaps this is the long term goal: to only email documents back and forth---except for those requiring signatures, I suppose.

Hmmm . . . .

I doubt it's much of an 'ultimate goal' at this point. You have to remember that there are people *all* over the world applying for K-1 Visa's. Procedure varies GREATLY at all of the consulates/embassies in all the different countries. (Procedure is even different between Montreal and Vancouver). Not to mention how unreliable e-mail really is in comparison to actualy letter mail (for the most part! I know it's not always the case). There are issues of security and the like as well. And, as hard as it is to imagine, there are still many people who don't even have an e-mail address (or even a computer for that matter) :D

Still, congrats on getting the docs via e-mail! That's awesome!
