How to mail IR-1 application to lockbox from Brazil

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

My Brazilian spouse and I are gathering our documents for the IR-1 spouse visa. We are currently both living in Brazil. Could anyone give advice about how to mail the package to the Chicago lockbox? Does the lockbox accept deliveries from UPS, DHL, or Fedex? I am very wary of the Brazilian post office these days. Thank you!

My fiance and I were both in Brazil when we mailed our fiance Visa petition to the Texas address in Lewisville. We used FedEx and paid about 350 BRL for it, took 8 days to deliver (from Porto Alegre, where I live). I believe you could do the same to deliver in Chicago, or alternatively go to a post office and ask about your options. I've mailed multiple docs to multiple countries through the post here and never had a problem, the most expensive options give you a tracking code so you'll know when it's delivered. Not sure about where you are in Brazil, but I particularly find our post service quite efficient and reliable.

Thank you for your reply. Recently, the Brazilian post office has been hit or miss (in my experience). I mailed letters to Ireland this year, and each time, they took more than 2 months to reach the recipient. My friends here are experiencing the same problems. I just don't want to risk possible delays.

Go back to the I-130 form page and look at the mailing instructions.  You'll find a street address on Dearborn to use with any courier.  Don't use the PO Box
