In Ciudad Juarez Mexico?

Yes, the cost of the Medical exam is almost 3,000 pesos (190usd plus 16% TAX). In our case since it was a fiancé visa I was not required to get the vaccinations. For Spouse visa you need to meet vaccination requirements.

Philippians 4: 6-7. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Biometrics for CR1/IR1 are completed at interview. It is not the required medical. All biometrics does is take your fingerprints and verifies your identity.

Really? I had to make an appointment for both and with two different addresses. I'm going to call up my attorney to see what he says because next week is all prep for interview and the Monday after is the interview finally.

You still need a medical. But bio-metrics should be taken on interview day unless they do it differently at CDJ.

I believe you are correct. At CDJ you have to have the medical and another appt. for the biometrics. All must be completed before the interview. Congrats and good luck on your upcoming interview!! How exciting! Please let us know what your experience is like at CDJ, the surrounding area, hotels, etc. It's always very helpful information for all of us heading that way :)

Yes I will let you guys know. Luckily my wife's cousin lives in Ciudad Juarez and she will commute us everywhere plus we get to stay at her place till I get my passport. And then we found out my wife is pregnant so we're gonna go get her an echo and leave Saturday from Guadalajara to Juarez at 4am lol
