Do I need to carry my duplicate petition to the POE? Is it worth keeping?

Had my interview in Sydney last week and was approved, received my passport and visa documents today. I leave in 2 weeks.

Do I need to carry the duplicate petition + interview documents with me? Should I keep them?

I would be putting them in my checked luggage.

They take up a lot of space and are ridiculously heavy, and my suitcases are already about to explode. There's two folders of paperwork from both the initial petition and then my interview documents.

I could always mail them but that's extra money and I don't trust Australia Post all too much, but I know that I could use something like DHL if necessary.

Scan them and store them online. The sealed envelope you are carrying has all the information CPB and USCIS will need. Don't burden yourself with papers.
