Schedule Interview and Biometrics K1 visa with no interview letter (Juarez)

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The title says it all. My fiancee's case arrived at the embassy in Ciudad Juarez on April 29. I haven't received any appointment letter, but was able to schedule her consular interview for June 5. She filled out the DS-160, paid the fee, and has scheduled both interview and the bio metric appointment. What do I do? I am sick of waiting for the government. Do you think I should keep the interview date and a) hope that the letter arrives between now and June 3rd or b) show up at the consulate and ask them to print out a letter that I have yet to receive or c) reschedule the interview and wait until I turn into a fossil with the hope that it arrives by 2030 or whenever they plan on sending it. Thank you. I cannot fill out a timeline at this time, so please answer the question if possible. Thank you.

For those that have successfully had an appointment letter printed out at the consulate in Juarez, where exactly at the consulate did you go to get the letter printed and what information about your case did you show them? Thanks.

The same office that she would go to for the interview is where she can have it printed, she would need it prior to doing anything, once she does biometrics they will stamp it and return it the day of theinterview. Given that it has already been send by the time she goes, she would need to show her passport to identify herself.

The information window at the consulate. Take ID and your CDJ case# so they can find you in the system. Some get it without a problem, others have to pretty much beg them to do it. I suppose it depends on who you get.

Your case has not even been there a month though. It can take up to 6 weeks to receive the letter one they get your case in Juarez.

My case arrived at the embassy on April 29, so I am going to take a gamble and just go ahead and leave the interview date as scheduled. It will be approximately 5 weeks from the date my case was received at the embassy to the interview date. If the letter does not arrive by then I will just go ahead and say they never mailed anything.....this is such a slow, frustrating process. I can't wait any longer. The next appointments available are at the very end of June. that is too long for me and my family.

I completely understand. I wish you luck. If it helps, I cannot recall anyone with an interview being turned away without getting the letter printed for them.

Hello hanniel,

I was fortunate to have received the invitation letter from Juarez just one month prior to our interview date. For what it's worth, I did personally witness one other couple that was in Juarez also for a K-1 which didn't receive their letter from the consulate. That couple stood in line for a few at the information window and received their print out. I'm sure they can assist you with that matter as long as you have the letter from the NVC which states the Ciudad Juarez case #.

Best of luck on your visa journey! :)
