Does USCIS still prefer ACCO easterners and hole-punched documents or do they scan it now so it does not matter?

Does it still matter to hole punch your files and papers or not anymore? On the website it still says hole punched papers are appreciated.

Not needed - it all gets scanned by the contractor.  It used to be that only the petition was scanned and not the attachments.  Just use a large binder clip.

Thank you! I was able to order them through their website just to be on the safe side as well.

When the local office process my application, they only review the scanned documents? So where will my physical copies be?

 

Also, I was thinking to organize the documents by tab dividers. But based on what you say, it means all my documents might just end up in a large PDF file (I guess) without any division?

 

Thanks a lot :)

Putting acco fasteners and tabs just makes more work for the contractor. They re-arrange the packets how they want to see it.   No one at USCIS is going to see your tabs.
