Okay for beneficiary's mailing address to be a friend's house? (Argentina)

Hola a todos, I'm excited to be joining these forums in anticipation of filing my I-129F sometime within the next couple months. I'm the USC and my beneficiary is Argentinian. My question is about the mailing address that I will write down for him. Will it cause problems if I use his best friend's house as the mailing address?

 

On two separate occasions last summer I mailed things to my then-boyfriend (a birthday card and a fun little surprise package) using his home address in Córdoba. Neither one ever got to him. The package got returned to me with an unable-to-deliver notice, and the card is in Narnia, I guess. Basically, the issue is that my boyfriend's house does not have a mailbox. The local postal worker is supposed to knock on his door or leave a note saying they have something for him, but evidently that system doesn't work consistently.

 

So naturally I am afraid that official correspondence (like the packets) wouldn't reach him if I used his home address. But his best friend's house seems to have a functioning mailbox, so we were thinking about using that as his mailing address. Of course, I'd still write in his home address in the part of the I-129F asking for physical address. Is it okay to have someone else's residence be the beneficiary's mailing address? It seems like it should be acceptable right? Or will it raise some sort of flag at the embassy?

 

Muchas gracias. :)

No it does not matter what address you use.  Just as long as its an address that can be found by the local mail system.  Once P3/P4 is mailed to him...you would want to know that he did get it and it didnt get lost in the shuffle.

Also, when you fillout the I129f, you need to cover the past 5 years of his life.....be prepared for that.  Just cover the last 5 years,......with correct addresses.

Great, thanks so much. And yes, it will be easy to cover the last 5 years of his life. His life has been pretty stable -- he just happens to have trouble receiving mail!
