How does the Juarez Consulate mail the packet to the benificiary? My fiancee is worried that because the mail system in mexico is not that great the packet might get lost. She does not have a mailing address becuase of where she lives so Im using my sister's address in Leon. Can anyone please advice! Thanks!

We just went through this two months ago. The Consulate's office in Ciudad Juarez will mail you (USC) and your finacee the invitation letter. We waited and waited. I called the Consulate's office to see if they would send a new letter. They said a new letter would be sent via overnight DHL. Wrong as that did not happen. Some background on the Consulate's office. If you call them you can expect to receive incorrect information. There are a number of people that have posted here that you can arrive at the Consulate's office early in the morning and go to the information window and they will print you the invitation letter. Anyway we waited for over a month and deceided to move forward with going to the informormation window. We already had completed the forms (DS260, DS156 and DS156K, etc). We had paid our visa fees but had not scheduled the interview. The next day not one but TWO invitation letters arrived at my home in the US. I scanned the letter and emailed it to my finacee. She went to Ciudad Juarez and was approved. We selected to have the DLH package delivered to a DHL office close to her home in Mexico City. The package arrive 6 days later. The strange thing is about three weeks later my finacee received two letters at her home in Mexico City!

Let me know if you have any questions as I think I might have most of your answers.

God Bless and God's Speed

The mail is terrible in Mexico. My husband never received the letter in Mexico City. They will also send the letter to the USC petitioner, but it can take it about 4-6 weeks to arrive after they mail it. You can go ahead and follow the instructions and schedule everything while waiting for the letter to arrive. If you want to research more on the Juarez process while waiting, check this post > http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/438076-what-exactly-do-we-ask-the-nvc-for/?p=6327340
