Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why only one passport per envelope? Why no family discounts?
A: There is no additional charge for courier return of your passport; all costs are included in your MRV application fee.  Security and safety rules for the courier require that every passport be tracked separately.

A: Aramex will attempt delivery of your passport only at the address you provided when scheduling your interview. If unable to deliver, they will leave a "we're sorry" card indicating that they had attempted delivery. Please contact Aramex immediately upon receiving this card. If the passport is not delivered within 10 business days, it will be returned to the Embassy. Please contact our call center for further information.
