Interviews in Juarez

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My I-130 has been approved and documentarily prepared since April 24, 2018 with the NVC. We are waiting for the consulate to send NVC open interview dates in order that we can get scheduled for an interview. Anyone else out there with a similar timeline? And if so, do you know what is going on with this lengthy interview waiting period in Juarez?

Our case closed date is may 15. While the email from NVC states most appts are scheduled within 3 months, we were advised to expect a 6-7month wait. Some people with early april case closed dates received interview dates for November, so hopefully you will receive your interview date soon!

That is really weird because you have already passed the six month mark.  The wait time I have been seeing has been 6-7 month average.  If they don't get you in by November it might be time to get your local congressman to step in.

They are scheduling this time around from april 12 forward.  Hopefully a lot more than before. 

The thing I noticed when we were at Juarez two weeks ago I didn't see many people throughout the day in line waiting for interviews.  We walked by the consulate everyday to observe the lines.  Another thing too is they only seem to do interviews between 8:00 am - 10:00 am.  The entire afternoon they are closed everyday.  They might need to work a little more throughout the day on these interviews.  Or if they can't handle it hire more staff or open up CDMX consulate for family visa interviews to clear backlog.

Was it on Friday close to noon on 10/12/18? We were almost one of the last people to leave before we had to come right back for the visa pick up.
