Contradictory Requests At US Consulate in Cairo

I just got off the phone with the US Consulate in Cairo after I had to call for a few question about what exactly I am supposed to mail back to them after receiving package3. I just wanted to know and make sure if I am suppose to mail the following:

1. My passport OR a copy of it (because, among the required documents they asked for, they said I should mail my passport NOT a copy of it)

2. A copy of my birth certificate (without specifying either an Arabic or an English certificate)

3. Police certificate (the same mentioned above about the birth certificate).

To my surprise, they said I don't have to translate either my birth certificate nor the police certificate. Grrrrrrr! I was like "but guys, I called as soon as I receive package3 and you asked for translated certificates". They said "no, you should mail a copy of my Arabic certificate, copy of my passport and the original copy of my police certificate) which I didn't have to translate any of that.

I am amazed at how people can be just with so much lack of attention and responsibility of how they are supposed to do their job right to guide others to the right away.

My recommendation is to send the originals and KEEP xerox copies for yourselves.

Good luck,
