Sorry if this is a silly question, but do you have any suggestions about what USPS box to mail the packet in? I saw a suggestion for the priority mail flat rate legal, so I picked up one of those. There is NO WAY it is going to fit even half of my packet which is huge. Is the flat rate box the way to go? The plastic envelopes would fit it but those seem so flimsy.

I use the Flat rate padded envelope at the clinic . . . but you have to order those for free ahead of time.

Fedex has a medium box and a tyvek pouch.   I don't use UPS but I am sure they have similar products.

 

You can always put it in any box that fits.  But both USPS and Fedex have flat or zone rated boxes.  

 

If you are looking to get it postmarked by a certain date then only USPS counts.

What kind of application are you sending that doesn't fit in a medium flat rate box?

It didn’t fit in the LEGAL size flat rate envelope some on this forum recommended. It did fit in the medium flat rate box so $15.50 later, it’s off. It would have been super loose in that box actually so I added an inner envelope that didn’t close.

Mine did not because I had to file with the I-944 - I used the large Fed Ex box and barely fit it in.
