K-3 Interview Ciudad Juarez

Hello! I want to be able to help with documents and things because most of them are in english and I will have my passport, it never leaves my side in another country!

So, then, why am I hearing from people that the American Spouse can not enter the counsulate? Does that mean that I need to just give her all my docs and sit outside. . . her without cell phone or anything?

If I could wait with her for hours inside where it is safe, it would be ideal. And I could help with sending her into rooms with the proper paperwork and stuff.

Could someone tell me?

Spouse can not go inside. I do not think cell phones are allowed either.

POSSIBLY with the new consulate this could change but not sure when that one opens either.

Thanks! So, really they are asking all petitioners to also carry the US citizen's passport inside without the owner? I find that an odd request. and very unsecure.

Hello SongKim, you don't necessarily need the US Citizen's passport, she can also use your original Birth Certificate. My husband will be using my original birth certicicate (well, it's actually a certified copy you get with the County Clerk). You should do that instead.

If you read the guides on the Juarez consulate it gives an option of the passport or birth certificate of petitioner.

Good luck

Thanks everyone! yeah, I guess i will not have an option then, since my birth certificate is held by the Korean Government and they do not want to release it to anyone. Thanks for clearing all that up for me! She will just have to go in with my passport. I will make sure that I have an Enhanced ID with RFID with me in case something happens to my passport. . . . I guess that is one way i could be more secure. :)

Nothing will happen to your passport. You can sit across the street from the current consulate and just wait for her, plan on all day! I doubt anyone is going to mug her crossing the street. There are guards at the gates of the consulate and a lot of people outside waiting so it is safe, especially right in front of the consulate.

Hey Thanks Gaby&Talbert :)

Good info.

Hey! Does anyone know if my wife needs to be able to speak English? I never heard if this was a requirement or anything. . . or if the consulate would be bias because she does not speak any of it. But, it is only a K3. . The government has been pretty catch 22 about everything else, like having documents that support "Showing us living together". . . that pisses me off. She does not have a VISA! how can we live together?! She doesn't even have a SS number and they want me to show joint bank statements? how dumb. .

Anyway, that is aside the question. :) Do they need to speak english for a K3 interview?
