I hope i did not rush past a step but I recently scheduled both the Juarez interview and ASC after receiving a ready status from the CEAC website. I also filled out the DS-160 and paid the visa fees. My fiance has not received a packet 3 but I have printed all of the instructions out for her. I have not had the best success with Mexican mail. What documents does she need to take with her to her appointments?

Your case is ready for your interview when scheduled at the U.S. Consular section. If you already have an interview appointment scheduled, please prepare your documents as directed in your appointment letter and appear at the consulate on the appointed date and time. Present your appointment letter at your interview, if you do not, you will be turned away. Otherwise, please wait until you have been notified of your interview appointment. Additional information about how Immigrant Visa interview appointments are scheduled can be found at

There's no "packet 3" for the Juarez consulate. All the info you need is in their instructions guide, located here: https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/K1/CDJ%20-%20Ciudad%20Juarez.pdf

Since you already filled out the DS-160, created the ASC account, paid the visa fee and scheduled both biometrics and interview - you're pretty much ready and the only thing you're missing is the Juarez "invitation letter". It's a one page document that allows you entry into all your appointments. They usually mail those out to both petitioner and beneficiary and most often the U.S. based petitioner will receive it first and you can send it to your beneficiary.

If by chance it's not received, you can take a chance by arriving one day earlier to Juarez and going to the consulate early morning to ask for the letter with a little polite, persistence ;)

Hope this helps.
