Hi Lucie,

You are very welcome. I'm just happy that I was able to help you and pay forward one of the many favors others have done for me.

You are correct about the report number. And, I would also include the parish name as well, to help narrow it down for them. The address is also correct. I would use the English word for Tunisa, though, instead of Tunisie. That might confuse one of our U.S postal workers before it even leaves our country.

Also, don't forget to include payment. I think the going rate is about $8 USD per request. As far as acceptable form of payment, though, that's rather in question at the moment. The first time I sent a personal bank check from the USA, and they accepted it; although, it took a very long time for them to process the payment (a few months). But now the last time I requested a document, they never cashed my next check. At the time I had to close my bank account and couldn't do so until they cashed it. So when I wrote to them to inquire, they offered to return my check, and asked for an U.S. postal order. However, when I went to the post office, I was informed that Tunisia can't process them, so they wouldn't give it to me. Now I've been going back and forth trying to figure out how I will be able to pay them. I certainly don't want to send cash (or Euro). So I'm having a bit of a quandary at the moment. I suppose I could always write them another check from my new bank, but not sure if U.S. checks cause them issues or not. Well, if you have any good ideas, I'd love to hear them. Because I owe them $8 now.

Good luck and I hope that you find what you're looking for.

All the best,
