Hello everyone! I need some orientation about the CAS at ciudad Juarez.. we received our package 3 yesterday and today we scheduled the appt at the consulate in CDJ :D we could not wait one more day to do it! but we have a question!!!
First the interview will be on Friday sep 9th @ 7.15 am and we had to schedule also an appt at the CAS: Ciudad Juarez ASC (?????) so we did it, and we schedule the appt for Thu sep 8th @ 3pm

so the CAS appt its different than the medical appt right?
we planned as follow:

My fiance will fly into CDJ on Wed sep 7th, he will get there around 6pm
on thu sep 8th he will go to get the medical done 6 am he will be in line
on thu sep 8th @ 3 pm he will go to the CAS (???) could you please explain me what will happen at this appt
on fri sep 9th @ 7.15 he will go to the interview
on saturday he will fly back home

please help me understanding whats about the appt at the CAS

thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

reading the reviews is always a great idea. They are super helpful and will give you an idea of what is going to happen in Jaurez. At the CAS appointment (or ASC in English) they take your fingerprints and take a picture. It takes less than 20 minutes. Don't show up too early, if you're appointment is at 3:00pm show up at like 2:50pm. They don't let you in earlier than that and you have to stand outside in the hot sun if you go too early!

Good luck...maybe we will see each other in the little waiting area on friday. Oh I just read your post again looks like only your fiancee is going to Juarez not both of you?

Is it OK to do ASC on the same day as the medical? It seems like most people do medical one day, ASC one day, and interview one day - but I would like for my fiance to do his medical and ASC in one day so we don't have to stay in Juarez too long. Is this OK? And is there any problem with the consulate getting the results by the next day in time for the interview? I read awhile back there were some instances where the consulate did not have the results.

Has anyone done ASC anywhere else outside Juarez? How do I find a list of offices outside Juarez to do ASC at? My fiance is in Queretaro. If we did it like a week before the interview, would that be enough time for the results to get to CDJ or is it better to do everything in Juarez?

Monyfer, its' fine to do the ASC the same day as the medical, just make sure you make the ASC appointment later in the day. It's also fine to do it the day before the interview. That's what we did.

There have been a few people who have done the ASC in a different city, when you go online to make the interview appointment they will give you a choice of cities for where you can do the ASC appointment. A week should be enough time.. but you can call the consulate and ask them.

Hi Monyfer as nikolacolada said you will get to choose, I dont remember seeing Qro (that will be a good option because my fiance lives in Irapuato) I think the closest to that area Gto-qro will be Mexico DF

what we did (according to the review I looked at) was to schedule the appt at 3pm so my fiance can receive his medical results at 2 pm and then go to the CAS

OK, well maybe I've got it all. The last paragraph I get says, Are you from Cancun I said, yes, I was born in Mexico City, but Ive been in Cancun my whole life, have you been there? He said yes, a long time ago. I asked where he was from and he said Im from New York and I said, Thats a little different ..."

After that there is a link that says, "read complete review". Perhaps that is the whole thing. It just seems like it ends in the middle of the sentence. I was hoping to read more about the interview questions.
