Default How long for Form 183 to arrive to US

Hey! I have sent the envelope with Form 183 to IWA a month ago and it has not arrived. I have this information confirmed by them and they say that they are still waiting for the form on my oasis account. The envelope left my country (Romania) on 10th of July. How long does it usually takes for the envelope to arrive? Have anyone had a problem like that? What would you advise me to do? This waiting kills me...

I used the mail post. When I've sent the envelope they gave me a registration number. I went to the mail post last week to check what had happened and they said that they could only track the envelope down until it left the country which was on 10th of July.That was the only information they had.

Oh. I don't know how it is over there. But in my country we never trust the mail post for those reasons and more. Its not like the american mail post which is well regulated. Its better to use FedEx or UPS for important documents or packages.

Probably they are just taking a long time to deliver it like the mail post usually does.

yup happened to me too.

just go to the USPS website and track it using the same number.
once it leaves our country and reaches USA the updates should be checked on the US postal website.

Oh I found it there! Thank you for your help. It's in New York since July the 12th. It says: Your item has been processed through our sort facility in ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS) at 5:44 pm on July 12, 2014. And at the status: Origin Post is Preparing Shipment. What does that mean?

How long did it take yours to get to IWA?

You mean its in NY since a month!
Something is wrong, USPS never takes this much time.
From NY to IWA is 2-3 days max.
Mine took exactly 15 days from India on two occasions.

See for a contact number on the USPS website and call them up ASAP.
