Info about VISA Interview Logistics in Ciudad Juarez

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am currently in the process of waiting for USCIS to approve my wife's I-601A petition. If that goes well, our next step would be a consulate interview in Ciudad Juarez. I have a few questions about how that whole process works and was hoping someone could shed some light on them for me.

 

1.) How long should we expect to be in Ciudad Juarez? We are planning on traveling there a couple of days before the interview, but would like to know roughly how long it will take for my wife to have her Visa so that we can then return to the states. 

 

2.) After we are notified that the Visa is approved, do we need to then return to the consulate in Juarez to get the Visa? Or do they mail the Visa? Do they ever tell you right at the end of the interview that you've been approved and issue the Visa on the spot? 

 

3.) How safe did everyone feel while they were in Juarez? Are there any hotel recommendations in safer areas in Juarez? I have heard about the high crime rate and frankly I'm terrified to be staying there for any amount of time.

 

4.) Will I, the husband, attend the interview with my wife? We have a four-year-old who will be traveling with us; will our child be allowed in the interview?

 

Thanks to anyone who responds! This is an amazing online community and I am happy to be a part of it.

Every case goes through Administrative Processing and the length varies wildly. Could be from 1 day, weeks, months, etc.

Can stay anywhere in Mexico as long as she can travel back to Juarez to pick up the passport when ready.
