Earliest delivery time (in a day) for courier submission of N-400?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



Does anyone know whether applications mailed by FedEx or UPS failed to be delivered to Lewisville (2501 S State Hwy 121 Business), because the delivery happened too early?

Alternatively, does anyone know the earliest timestamp that Lewisville accepted N-400 sent by courier?


Fedex has few next day delivery options by 10:30am or by 3:00pm. However, Fedex was unable to tell me how EARLY in the morning they start delivering.

I'm not answering your question directly but if you haven't already sent your package, I suggest USPS express mail flat rate which is far cheaper than Fedex or UPS and also 1 day delivery. My delivery was from Wisconsin to Arizona.

Hi did USPS courier at the same location.  It was initially too early, and then I received a note that it was redelivered in the afternoon.  I'm unsure of the other services.  That said, I'm still waiting to receive notice or a charge after having mailed it on the 29th.
