We need a few documents (no value) sent from Cebu to USA.

Can anyone suggest the best way such that they get here in a week or two?

I know sending from USA to the Phils is at best, questionable, but how about the other way?

 

 

Depends on the cost you're looking for. I sent all my documents to my husband with FedEx, 3 days, large folder for $90 and delivered to his door in Manila area now issues. Assume Cebu would work too.

The documents are being sent from Cebu to USA and not the other way.

Try either FedEx or DHL. Both are pricey but they will get there. There is no way they can be emailed and you print them their in the USA?

Thanks, the error is understandable, most issues are USA to the Phils, not the other way around.

 

Nah, they really should have an ink signature on them.  We've been hit with an RFE (k1 aos stage) which asks for affidavits and it seemed to me that an affidavit from the family who talk to both of us on a weekly basis might be appropriate to add since USCIS asks for "sworn affidavits from others with personal knowledge of the validity of the marriage."  I (US citizen have no close relatives that I can use, and I'm new to this area so have no friends that I can use either.  We'll use neighbors but I wondered if a family member might be worth adding to the pile.

 

It would be quite a trip for them to get to Cebu so I was wondering just how long a Phil post letter would take (cringe).

Philpost has "International Parcel Services," that would cost about us $40

Anyone ever use this method?  The advantage would be that the relative would not have to spend an entire day travelling to Cebu City.

LBC or FedEX  (my wife used FedEx)

There's also JRS Express.  I've used only their domestic service, so can't speak for their international delivery.  But they have branches all over Cebu island, not just Cebu City.  Might be worth checking out if traveling is a concern.  The website says document delivery to the US starts at 1,250 pesos (around $25) for 500 grams.

I had some luck recently using Fedex International Priority. From a 2GO express, my package got to the US in about 3 days, signature required, for about 1900 php. Mine was a stack of approx 100 pages @ 0.5 kg...obviously your RFE would weigh less.

We used DHL in 2017 and 2018.  Took less than a week.  Used Philpost once and it took 3 weeks or so.
