Jurauz Visa pickup, timing?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm curious how long people have waited in Jurauz for their K1 visas, or Visa (I don't know if AP is similar timing for all visas).

 

We have her interview on august 28th, and I booked the hotel until sept. 6th.  will this be enough time for us to pick her visa up in Jurauz if she is approved?

Good morning,

 

  Best wishes with your journey.  I am not sure if what I am about to say will be of any help but here goes.  My wife went through the K1 process a number of years ago and here is our story.  She lived in Mexico City so we decided not to hang around  Ciudad Juarez waiting for the K1 visa.  We elected to have the K1 sent to the DHL office close to our home in Mexico City.  Stayed in Cuidad Juarez for 2.5 days did the biometrics, medical, and interview and flew back to Mexico City.  The visa showed up at the DHL office four days later.  It was marked hold for pickup so we walked to the DHL office and signed for the package.  

 

I am sure you have been told this but do not open the famous brown envelope that is inside the DHL package.  You will present that brown envelope to the immigration official at your point of entry in the US.  If you fly into the US you will be directed to secondary where they will take the envelope.  

 

God bless and let me know if you have any questions.

I just got back form Juarez for my fiance's appointment, and it seems like it really varies. I met one couple who got their packet just two days after their interview, but met another woman who had been waiting for two weeks to receive hers.

Updating this to let you know that my fiance received his visa from Juarez today, much faster than we expected. Interview was on April 9th and visa was mailed from Juarez to where he lives in Merida, so it arrived very quickly. I assume it would have arrived even faster had we decided to wait for it in Juarez, so I think you should be fine with the dates you've chosen! Feel free to message me if you have any questions about traveling to/staying in Juarez! I'd be happy to help :)
