Interview Documents Ciudad Juarez

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good morning all!

I have been searching for some information on what to bring to the interview and have received some contradicting information so I decided I would just make my own post.

My husband has his interview a month from today for a CR-1 visa in Juarez and I am trying to get all of the paperwork together.

My question is: apart from the required visa interview documents listed on the interview invitation, and relationship evidence, what is needed, if anything? I have seen many people on here saying they brought another I-864, and all of the documents they sent in with their IV/AOS packet but have also seen people say that this is not needed. I am confused and of course want everything to be perfect!

Thank you in advance for any and all help! :)

CDJ is extremely busy and they tell you exactly what they want -- just do what they say. Many people have written about their experiences here:

http://www.visajourney.com/reviews/index.php?trim=no&cty=&cnty=Mexico&page=1&dfilter=5&topic=IR-1/CR-1

The link doesn't seem to work, so just go to the embassy reviews at the top of the page, and enter Mexico and cr1/ir1 into the correct boxes and you will find plenty of experiences.

Hi AlmostDoneWhew, thanks for the reply! However, thats where I have been finding the contradicting information so I was hoping for a more straightforward answer. Anyone else?

The question is not what did they take with them, but rather what did the embassy ask for during the interview. But if you have any doubts whatsoever, then of course package up everything you have and take it with you -- CDJ is not known for asking for lots of stuff at the interview, but there is never any downside to taking too much.

And be sure you read only the info about cr1/ir1 visas

This is very true! Just rather be over prepared than under prepared! :) Thank you!

Edited to ask: Also, something I'm wondering about specifically, is a new I-1864 and tax info from 2014 needed for myself and my cosponsor for the interview, or is what we sent to NVC sufficient?

Since it is post April 15, it would not be a surprise to have them ask for updated info for 2014, so I would be prepared with new I-864 forms as well as IRS transcripts in case they ask.
