Me too, me too! Jejeje! Have you guys looked on the consolate reviews page? There's some good long interview stories there. Thing is, I don't think there have been many VJ members with K-1 Mexico visas being at that stage for these last few months (according to the timelines). There seems to be a good sized batch about ready now still waiting on their packet 3's so I'm hoping they'll share with the rest of us when the time comes (if they can tear themselves away from the loved ones for a few minutes!) How bout it guys?

C_Maria and Gus&Cole,

I am most interested too in finding out how the medical & interviews go. That part of the process does concern me due to the state of the city. Sorry, but I can't help being straight forward with the crisis that Cuidad Juarez finds itself in. I know from another K1 experience that in the Lima, Peru Embassy they interview folks and after they are approved , the K1 Visas get sent via DHL to their residences. From what I've read in the CJ Embassy review, people actually have to stay in 'Hotel Row' for aprox. 6 days waiting for the completion and deliverance of their visas. So I wish for the folks who are in line to interview soon be kind enough to fill in that experience. Good question G&C!

Best regards,

E&R4EVER

From the information I've gathered the last step inside the consolate building during the interview is a stop off at their mailing department where you pay the DHL processing fee and tell them where you'd like the papers mailed. You then have the option of returning home if that is the address you specify or waiting it out in CJ 3-10 days. I think a lot of people get it there for various reasons; to return with it in hand, to have it faster, and mostly because lots of people are waiting to cross right then.

My fiance has made it clear to everyone in his life in Mexico that as soon as that packet 3 comes it's hugs and kisses (maybe just a handshake to the boss, haha)and straight to CJ in the same day where he will complete his interview and wait it out to cross the instant DHL has it!

I understand that other people have things going on in their lives that don't make it possible or practical to stay in CJ after the interview or cross right away so there is the other option. And the visa is "active" for entry for six months from the issue date so there is flexibility there as well.

Thanks again for the videos Kimchimex, these are super helpful!! I think one of these actually shows every step of the interview including the mailing address part. :)

Hey there! The informaation from C_Maria was is very accurate according to the procedures last month, but I was in Juarez just yesterday finishing everything, and they just changed some procedures like the DHL, now you have two options: the first one is to register at mexico.usvisa-info.com or you can do it at the DHL counter inside the consulate (I did the later). Another thing is that you don't have to pay anything since it is already include in the K-1 $350 fee.

Hope this helps (:

Thanks to everyone who's been keeping us informed. My Fiance and I are STILL waiting for our letter from Juarez. I emailed the Juarez consulate three weeks ago and they emailed me back that they had received our paperwork from the VISA Processing center. Just havent seen anything from Juarez.

She would have to go to the DHL office whenever they receive her visa (whether it is in CDJ or Chih)because they don't send the visas to specific addresses, also once she chooses a DHL location, it can't be change so be sure she selects the right place. It'll take about two days to receive the visa in CDJ and about a week anywhere else in mx.

Good luck!
