How do I fill out and submit the 1583 form?


The 1583 form should take no longer than 5 minutes to fill out. You'll need to mail it to us, along with copies of two (2) forms of acceptable IDs (see below for acceptable IDs.) You can also scan everything and email it back to us at [email protected]


After you download the form from the welcome email, print it out, and enter the following information in the boxes indicated (leave ALL other boxes blank):

Box 1: Enter the date.
Box 2: Enter your name (this MUST be the same name that is on the copies of your IDs!)
Box 3: After the "#" enter your suite number. This is the number that was sent to you when you signed up for your account.
Box 5: Enter your name. (Same name as your IDs, This allows us to sign for signature-required packages.)
Box 6: Enter your name. (Again, enter the same name as your IDs, and boxes 2 and 5.)
Box 7a-7e: Enter your address and phone number. Don't worry about your country, there is no space for this on the form.
Box 16: Sign here

Next, you must get the form notarized.

The notary must sign Box 16, and stamp/seal the form. Banks and embassies normally provide notary service. Both U.S. and non-U.S. notary seals are accepted. If finding a notary proves impossible, you can go through a lawyer or bank official who can sign or stamp an official seal on the form. Government seals are also acceptable.
