My husband was just approved on July 27th, and was told he should recieve his passport with his Visa within 5 days. I know it could take longer than that but i wanted to get an idea of how long it took for others... Thanks!

My interview was on Thursday Jun 25 and I got the visa on Wednesday Jul 1. It stayed an entired day in Juarez.

Basically the consulate generated the visa on Friday, it stayed all day there then they sent it to Monterrey on Monday and Monterrey to Saltillo on Tuesday and I picked it up Wednesday morning in Saltillo.

That's not bad, considering you had it delivered to another city. My husband is waiting for it in Juarez, sounds like he has a good chance of coming home later this week. Thank you for your post!

Nope! Nothing yet. My husband decided to go down to the DHL office tomorrow to see if it's there. Hey you'll never know! Doesn't hurt to check it out!

That's a great idea!! He has the tracking number right??

No! He didn't have anything! I woke up this morning and had an email from our lawyer, she provided us the tracking number and said it was already there! I guess it was his gut feeling that already knew somehow.
