Aa soon as the petition is sent and received by Jurauz You can go to the visas website for mexico and schedule your k1 interview.  Usually is 3-6 months out.  

 

Schedule the soonest appointment available then keep checking for earlier appointments.

Is it smart to wait a little bit before scheduling? Or does it not matter?

 

Our K-1 petition was sent out from the NVC yesterday (7/9/2019), and the physical shipment has not yet arrived in CDJ. I don't think it has even really left haha. However, our status changed to "Ready" in CEAC as of this morning. We should have the DS-160 done later today.

 

Obviously, we aren't going to get the physical letter for some time, but thinking about going ahead and seeing if it is possible to schedule an appointment. I've read a lot of the posts here that state that you do not need the letter in hand before scheduling, and worse comes to worse, can walk up to the window at the consulate prior to your appointment and have them print you out a letter. But don't want to jump the gun and do anything that gets too far ahead of the consulate (but if the consulate has already changed it to "ready" - I assume that means they have the electronic petition?).

Dont expect a physica letter from mexico.  Many never receive it. So receive it AFTER their interview.

 

You can obtain a copy from the consulate service window.

Does anyone know how long it takes to get the letter in the mail after it reaches the consulate in Juarez?

See above.  Prevailing wisdom seems to be not to wait, and just to get it from the consulate window, since it may never arrive.  As such, it seems there is no barrier to scheduling your interview as long as the status is "ready" on CEAC and you have completed the DS-160 and paid the fee.

 

The available times seem quite volatile.  The first time we looked, there was nothing until November 15th.  Then a day later something opened up mid-August.  With such variation, it seems to pay off to be vigilant in looking and refreshing.

Dumb question....  does the petitioner get a copy of this letter as well?

I have no primary source knowledge of that.  However, I have seen a post on VJ that said that the petitioner does receive one, and that it may be sent from some place in Texas.  No idea of the truth of that though.

Yes they do, speaking from experience as the petitioner. Although the letter only explains to go ahead and schedule an appointment. I would not wait for this letter to schedule appointment. You may never get it or could be weeks. As soon as you get it scheduled, I'd CALL and speak to an agent, they are friendly and will get you a sooner date! Just be ready to leave! Best of luck!!! You can have that letter printed directly from the consulate when your significant other arrives. No biggy. Just give your significant other an extra day to go up there and get it printed.

That’s encouraging.   I’ve heard there is a looooooong wait for interviews in Juárez.   Most people advising to just check the site multiple times a day to see if you can get an earlier slot.  Hadn’t heard that calling could be a better option.  I will certainly do that when I get to that stage.  Thanks for the advice.

You're welcome, I would definitely call, like you said once you get to that point. I have feeling that they have a somewhat different view of open slots for interviews than we do. Although i cant verify that. Good luck!
