Only Juarez is available for the CR1 interview ?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been able to have the  interview portion of the CR1 somewhere other than Juarez? I read that it's the only place were  USCIS processes family VISAS, and I checked online in numerous websites and found a government one saying that Mexico City processes ''some'' But I know it's unlikely, right? I also checked that there is one approved clinic in Mexico City, were you can get your medical. 

Just wondering if we, the people that live literally in the opposite corner of the republic (Cozumel here ) could go somewhere closer!

We're in Cancun. We do NOT want to go to Juarez, but it's the only option. Mexico City is only for people that have an established address there. 

hey neighbors!

I am moving for work to Mexico City, where I intend to wait until the process is finished. So i will have an established address there.

I have no timeline yet... I have to submitted the I-129F. Hopefully this week once I get my pending questions answered. 

Me neither! we are front loading our petition so it's taking a little longer. let's stick together, since this process is so nerve wracking!
