10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello every one and good luck to all of us on our journey.

I have a quick question: 

I can not really decide to file my application on line or mail out the paper version :(

Are there applicants who mailed out their application ?

 

Thank you sooo much

99% of people are doing it online as it is convenient and cheaper (no need to spend money on printing/mailing) plus you get to see all your documents/notices in your online account pretty quickly. It is 2019, you shouldn't be asking this question!
