Consulate Review: Juarez, Mexico
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 20, 2007
Embassy Review : The interview went great....different persons asked us some questions at different stages of the daytime stay at consulate queue system...last guy was really nice.... we were the LAST Approval to walk out of the consulate that day And I mean LITERALLY they were cleaning up the room we sat in to make room for a party they were having that evening lol.

Plan on spending a long day there.....

Guards were really nice.... God Bless them for helping us when the consulate decided to close the place Thurs & Friday (they decided this on Tuesday THE DAY WE LANDED IN JUAREZ0...so No signs no anything....nothing on their website.... we did the medical the same morning we entered the queue at the consulate a BIG NO NO so I am told....but they made an exception in our case and even game me as the US citizen a pass to keep exiting the place to get the documents, money order, and the medical as they were ready.... if it were not for these very kind guards we would have had to travel back another time at great expense.... Lucita lived in merida, Yucatan (sorta like Florida to California in distance) and I in Florida...
Rating : Very Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
