Wait time after I-601 Approved

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I received a letter saying my I-601 was approved on April 24, 2019. I am supposed to wait for a packet via DHL to give me further instructions. Does anyone have any experience on how long before I receive that packet? And will it be mailed to our US address or our Mexican address. I am living in a border town, husband works on US side. 

Thanks for any help!!!!!

First of all, congratulations!!!

 

Secondly, after mine was approved, I contacted the consulate to let them know and to see if they had received the approval.   It took two months for us, USCIS continued to say they sent out, the consulate continued to say it hadn't been received.   It was stressful but I'm so thankful for the approval!

Thank you, this is definitely and extremely stressful time, do you remember how to get in contact with the consulate? I have been trying to google it, but have not had much success finding an answer. It would be to the Juarez consulate. 

 

Thank you for your response! 

 

Did you get a DHL package explaining what the next steps were?

I haven’t gotten a letter but I did redo my Ds-260 and the following day got an email that my original appointment (feb 2018) was cancelled, so I went on the scheduling site and was able to book the appointment for October 29. It was already pre-selected. This just happened in the last couple of days. Haven’t received anything in the mail yet.

I don't remember a package, I just communicated through email with them. 

 

Others may be able to help you with the email address!

That's a lengthy wait time!  Are all interviews that far out there?
