寄護照到美國

因為報稅被要求要我的護照正本查看,公民老公要我寄護照過去,我寄了現在卡在美國海關,一查才知道護照用寄的一定會被查扣,怎麼辦,會被扣多久呢?老公之後還要從美國寄還給我呀,寄回台灣時該怎麼辦呢?也會被查扣嗎?就是很急才用郵局快捷寄的....

Update:

老公說是在交 w-7 form的時候IRS要求要看我證件正本的,我在台灣所以就要求要看我護照,我還在辦移民中所以沒有社會福利號,就單純寄護照跟移民文件需要的良民證一起用郵局快捷到美國,查單號發現郵件顯示處理狀態是在美國海關,原因:其他,我GOOGLE後發現原來寄護照一定會被美國海關查驗@@??

Update 2:

Thank you Gary, 應該要寄certified true copy就好的,我會聯繫TECO看是否有什麼辦法拿回,不然真的就一整個冏只好重辦.....然後遺失重辦居然只有三年效期更冏...想想應該沒什麼機會護照可以再被安全的"寄"回台灣...唉>

Update 3:

Thank you Gary, 我明白他們扣護照的用意,只是既然寄件人就是護照持有人,我以為這樣他們會放行...已跟TECO聯繫,TECO說沒遇過CBP給他們護照,不過TECO還是會幫我去問CBP,如果真無法拿回,台灣重辦那我這樣算是在國內遺失還是國外遺失@@,我包裹中除了護照還有良民證跟大頭照數張,是整個包裹都會被處理掉?還是僅護照扣住其它東西由USPS繼續寄到收件人呢?這問題真的有點難,畢竟這種事還真的很少人碰過吧,謝謝大家的回覆。

    I have reviewed everything based on what you have mentioned.

    Bottom line - your husband misunderstands the entire situation.

    In answering your question, your passport is most likely to be confiscated permanently. U.S. Postal Service and U.S. CBP will mostly send your passport directly to TECO for you.

    The reason why you can't mail a passport internationally is obvious - to avoid counterfeiting.

    In your case, if you mail your passport directly to the IRS, then you will be fine. But both of you chose another way.

    Also - as mentioned in the instruction, a certified true copy can replace the original copy. I simply see no point mailing the original.

    If you want quickly resolve the issue, you (the passport holder) should contact the TECO Office where the passport is being detained. As a passport issuing agency, TECO should have the authority to negotiate the release of your passport (as it is a Taiwanese Government property and TECO is official representative for the Taiwanese Government).

    Let's put this in another way.

    What USPS and CBP are doing is in a way to protect you.

    Imagine you lost your passport and people mail that out to change it.

    So they are doing a good thing, in an odd way.

    補充後續狀況:

    卡了三天半的包裹終於又從海關轉回美國郵局繼續寄出,很奇怪,收到的包裹完全沒有被打開過,一整個就是我寄快捷應該三天會到,結果花了一週,沒拆開檢查確又硬是被卡在海關三天半@@總之,好險安然寄到了! 謝謝Gary/JJ的回覆。往後有重要文件我只會用國際快遞不用郵局了~
