My fiance is Venezuelan currently residing in Colombia.  He wishes to move to Mexico.  Currently we are in NOA1 status.  Is there a way if he chooses to move to Mexico if we can change the interview location to Mexico?

 

Thanks!

Depends on the residence status.   

 

Be aware, CDJ is the busiest IV unit in tbe world which means they have the greatest backlog 


YMMV

Will your fiance be able to get legal resident status in Mexico?

Might be about the same as Colombia still isn’t even taking cases from the NVC and people from March 2020 who have been at the NVC still haven’t been approved

Juarez is at least that backed up, if not more so.   Unlike some of the other consulates, they went into the pandemic with an existing backup.

 

If he wants to move there anyway (and can get legal residence), and CDJ is willing to take the case, there’s no reason not to do that.   But it won’t save time overall.

I have been waiting for my interview in Juarez for 15 months next week, most people are waiting up to 20 months for an interview, so total process for some is at least 3 years, just so you know. If I could change consulates I would.

Moving again will complicate the process as criminal reports are needed in country of birth,  the country he now lives in 

and he wants to add Mexico?

why Mexico when it is already so slow and there jobs are scare?

Wow, did Covid even play into that at all or is that just normal?

It's a bit longer due to covid.   But only by a few months.

He can interview there but it will be a longer wait.   Especially a K1.

 

Make sure he has the correct visa.  He can't work on a FMT and even on some/ most Temporary Resident Visas.   Mary was asked about her Mexican Visa at the interview but it was a Permanent Resident Visa so they didn't ask about work.

 

Then there is need for a police report. Depending on the state it can be a challenge.

Let him move to Mexico. Sure. Go back to Columbia when the interview arrives. 

I think this is easier than trying to move the case to another Embassy given the backlog they’re facing right now.

There was a backlog of 1 year prior to covid for CR1/IR1, but then appointments were cancelled in March 2020 and these resumed slowly in December, so we've seen some progress between Dec 2020 and now. The approx wait time is 20 months for interview for CR1/IR1, and I believe K1's are now taking a year to be assigned an interview.
