Numerous applicants have reported issues using alternate shipping methods, including lost passports. The Nonimmigrant Visa Unit cannot assume responsibility for any lost or damaged passports/documents that are not submitted through the contracted courier.

For security purposes, the U.S Embassy, London strictly prohibits the attachment of tracking devices to passports and accompanying documentation for visa applications. If any passport or documentation is found to have a tracker attached, it will be removed, and the device will not be returned. Your cooperation on this matter is greatly appreciated.
