My fainces visa was approved today. 

 

they only took her passports, medical exams, ds160 confimations, p3 letter,  and asked a few questions:

where i work

where i live

if i have children

 

then gave her a green slip and approved the visa (for now)

 

they didnt even take my affidavit. ūüôĄ

 

why?

 

it is almost like they approved it before she walked in (such as some people predict they do)

 

but i dont get why they didnt take the affidavit.  i thought that was like required.

Consulates have their own policies.......it isn't a problem........  Did the status change to "issued" already?

haha no. and we arent expecting any changes to her status until at least end of day.  as juruaz is busy as fk.

 

and yes. we are well aware "nothing is approved until visa is in hand"

 

but i do know visas in mexico move faster than other countries.. such as a few days after a vernal approval people usually have the visa in hand. from what ive seen.  the no affidavit was a surprise to me as ive seen mexico is heavy on the public charge issue and being in the US without documents.

Congrats! Were you in Juarez for the interview? It surprises me as well that they did take the affidavit as well. I gave that to my fiance along with tax transcripts and W-2s just in case.

yes i was in jurauz.  my fiance had the affidavit with her which included my employer letter, transcripts, pay stubs, w2s and 1040s from.2018 tax filing.  I guess this was the first time i seen them approve a visa without taking the affidavit or even looking at it.

 

im 24.  have 2 kids and my fiance has one. totalling household size of 5.  a 24 year old making  125% for a household of 5,... i was really expecting them to take it lol.  but approved for now so i wont complain.

 

 

Only thing i can think is they had 6 months to check into things, possibly checked the packet (i129f) before the interview,  verified info (such a semployer) and etc.

Sounds good, but like you said....wait until you have the passport in your hand and the visa in the passport.   An old baseball legend one said, "It ain't over, 'til its over!" B-)

 

Best wishes to you and your family on your immigration journey.

Did they ask her if you were in Juarez? I don't think I'm going to be able to be in Juarez for the interview and I'm kind of worried that it might be a problem.

An I-134 is only a tool to help the CO assess the public charge risk. It is NOT required by law (Manila COs rarely request one).

An I-864 for AOS or an immigrant visa is actually required.

haha makes sense. but ive seen normally mexico is pretty hard on the public charge issue, never seen a review of juruaz or talked to someone who was approved in jurauz where they completly left out the affidavit.
