K-1 CDJ Process

Timeline

I arrived yesterday to CDJ, took a taxi from the airport to the hotel (which cost $245 pesos). The taxi driver was really nice, and as soon as he knew that I was in Juarez for my visa he gave me a mini tour of the consulate, the clinics and everything important around the hotel areas. The hotel we picked is 'La quinta inn', in my opinion this is a great hotel if you are coming to Juarez for immigrations purpose, it's really clean, the rooms are really nice and they have complementary breakfast every morning and a shuttle that takes you everywhere 10 km around the hotel with no cost.

Today I had my medical examination, I took the shuttle from the hotel at 6:00 am. When we got to the clinic they asked for the invitation letter and the passport to let you in. Once inside the check your papers again and assign you a number mine was 38. We were waiting for a few minutes when a lady came in and called the next ten numbers (including me) and told us to go to the other clinic because the one we were at was too full (the first clinic was clinica medica internacional and they sent us to servicios medicos fronterizos) once in the other clinic the called us in the same order we arrived in the other clinic. They checked my papers again and sent me to a window where I gave my papers, the took a picture of me and asked me to sign in a tablet (so they would have an electronic signature). Then they sent us to a waiting room, where males and females where separated to the the x-rays.

For the x-rays the gave each on of the girls a cubicle where we had to strip our upper body and put on a paper gown. They asked us to do our hair into a bun, and then I went to the x-ray machine, I had to put my chest close to the machine and my hands on my waist and take a deep breath.

After that they took us into another waiting room where a lady stared calling names from a door, I went inside, took a seat and wait until they took a blood sample. Then they sent us to the second floor for the last exam. Once again us girls went into a different room than the boys, in that room the took our blood pressure, ask us if we had had kids, or being pregnant before and then asked when did we had our last period. *Note: if you had had children they will ask when did your last kid was born. Then they measure and weight us, and make us wait for a little longer, until another lady called us took us to a room where we had to strip completely and put on the paper gown again. Then the lady asked for any chronic illness, surgeries, piercings, tatoos, drugs, or arrests. Then she checked my lungs and left the room so I would be able to dress up again.

Then it was back to the first floor to pay 183.5 usd for the medical examination and I was told to come back at four for the results.

That's my experience until now. I'll be sure to keep you guys posted. Btw, I'm going to the consulate tomorrow morning for my interview!! wish me luck (:

Thanks :D! Actually the consular officer didn't asked me for anything outside the important forms not even the tax returns or proof of employment/payments of my fiancé, but I had the last 3 year tax returns with me just in case :P

Here's my review just in case anyone needs it (: Good luck to all everyone!

One more question: in my understanding, you didn't pay visa fee (350 USD) in Banamex but in the consulate...so this part of the process has changed now?

That's correct Danilu (: I actually went to Banamex to asked because I was really confused! and they said that they don't receive payments for immigration visas there anymore, only tourist visas.
