The Assistant Stork
Your Document And Visa Specialists
 

The US Department of State, the Embassies and the Assistant Stork will be closed Monday, February 18, 2013 for President's Day.

 


As of 9/17/2012

The US Department of State is changing their processing time.  Instead of processing documents while you wait, it will now take 3 - 5 business days.

Our Courier Service

Here's all our info for processing dossiers through any DC Embassy:

For your fee, we look over the documents as soon as we receive them and check them for accuracy.  If there are any problems with your documents, we let you know immediately.  We take your documents to the State Department as soon as possible after we receive them.  (The State Department is only open 8AM - 9AM and the mail comes in too late for us to take them through the same day we get them.)  At the State Department, we must drop off your documents and they will give us a receipt with the date we are allowed to pick them back up.  This can take 1-3 business days, depending on their workload.

As soon as that's finished, we will take your documents down to the Embassy for Authentication. We will leave your documents with the Embassy and pick them back up on the date they are ready.


We also process Visas for all Embassies.


NOTICE: It has come to our attention that some of you would prefer to pay by credit card. Some of you are overseas and cannot get Money Orders. Due to this, we are now willing to accept Pay Pal payments, but they charge 4.5% of the total for the privilege. Let us know if you wish to pay via PayPal and we will email you an invoice.

Please use the service of your choice (i.e. FedEx/ExpressMail/UPS/DHL/whatever - anything trackable) to mail your documents to:

Laura Morrison
The Assistant Stork
2144 Aquia Drive
Stafford, VA 22554

Our phone number is: 540-659-6845


Please be sure to sign the "waiver of signature" on your package if you use ExpressMail. We are in DC processing dossiers when the mail carrier arrives. There is a special place the mail carrier leaves the dossiers that only he or she can see from our door, not visible to the street. FedEx, DHL and UPS always leave the packages for us, whether we are here or not. Do not require signatures on your packages.


Be sure to keep the "Sender's copy" of your waybills or at least write down the tracking numbers so you can watch your package being delivered and leaving our office on its way back to you.


Please email us when you've sent your documents so we'll know to look for them.
