Requesting a French police report. Enclose €5 for stamps?
July 8, 2014 5:35 PM   Subscribe

I need to request a police report from a French city. The USPS doesn't sell International Reply Coupons anymore, and I can't mail coins. I can send a €5 bill (about US$7) to cover the €2 postage, or nothing at all. I have included my email and fax in the letter as well as a self-addressed envelope. Is it a good idea or bad idea to include the five Euros?

Can you or a Francophone friend give the non-emergency number for the police in the town a call and see what they would prefer?

The French post office seems to offer a print-at-home service; might that be an option?

It's a perfectly fine idea if they take cash. What are you imagining are the downsides to a $7 solution to your problem? Otherwise I'm sure someone here can hook you up with stamps.
