      I read somewhere in the news that Indians do it all the time. One enters the U.S. on a real visa then mail back their passport. After that some skilled forger changes the name and picture in it and another Indian enters the U.S. So I guess it is legal.

      Cheers.

          It is best to consult with your Embassy ( WHY would you need to mail it out of US in the first place?)

          As to legality of mailing passport out of US, I beleive this is the question for someone who practices the Law.

            Many countries require the current passport be mailed back when applying for a new passport. Canada is a prime example. It's hardly against the law -- in fact, it is required in this case.

              Its totally illegal to send Passports internationally. Its one thing domestically but not over international waters.

                Well, I guess you better tell the Canadian government that then. Apparently no one has ever told them.

                  Communication ( or lack of) is always the issue!

                    Ironically, just today I mailed off my passport to Canada. Should I turn myself in to the authorities? I hope its not considered an aggravated felony.

                        Which part of International Waters didnt you get. Is there international waters that divide the Us and Canada?
