Even if you wait for your visa in Juarez, it could take several days for you to be able to pick it up at DHL in best case, it could be even weeks. I wouldn't make any flight arrangements before you have your visa in hand.

The interview day is the last day I plan to spend in Ciudad Juarez. The interview is at 9am. Thoughts about booking a flight at 7.50 pm flight leaving Juarez? Will this be enough time? Thoughts and opinions? 

Thanks 

 

 

Are you the USC?  If so, then your plan is fine.  

 

If you’re the beneficiary, are you talking about a flight to the US?  If so, that’s not realistic.  Best case scenario you are verbally approved, there is still processing to issue the visa.  This takes days, weeks, and in unfortunate cases, months to a year or more.  Do NOT book a flight to the US until you have a Visa in your hand.

 

If you’re talking about flying elsewhere in Mexico, then sure :)

Sorry, I forgot to add that we'll be flying back to my fiance's home state in Mexico after interview not the US.

We chose to leave the next morning, but had the visa mailed to us via DHL in Mexico. We received the tracking number, and it came a few days after we were home in Tijuana.
