Best Courier sending from USA to Philippines?

24 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Guys, 

 

Will be sending some paperwork soon to my wife in the Philippines from the US. She lives in the province and doesn't have a house number or street name but receives mail fine most of the time. What would be a safe and reliable courier to use but not too expensive? Thanks!

No original documents are required,  most scan, email and print locally

DHL, FEDEX  (this is contracted by 2G0 same company that delivers the visa package)

 

And like said you can use scanned documents .. email them as attachments and print out there.  FREE delivery  ;)

3 to 5 pesos for b/w and 10 to 15 for color.  Price depends on whether you qualify for the family discount

Ok thanks for the info. I would really like to just have her print but for CRBA originals are required. But some of the docs will be for my wife's visa too.

If you want tracking, then DHL, but it is not cheap. I want to say around $70.

Cool, yeah I will probably have to go that route. Thanks.
