Event Description
Review Date : October 27, 2014
Embassy Review : So here's our story...

Place staying while in Juarez: Wife's cousin house

Way of getting to places: Wife's ccousin's car

October 21- Biometrics appointment, appointment was at 2:00 pm. We arrived there like at 1:50 pm. Try not to arrive too early 15 minutes is perfect. We were waiting in the sun for like 40 minutes, not fun. Once inside I realized when I made the account I didn't include the letter before my passport number but the ASC people were really nice about fixing my mistake. So they ask for interview letter, ds-260 and passport. Then they tell you to take a seat in a certain order and the security guard will call out what window is ready. At the window they get fingerprints and a picture. They tell you to arrive to your interview 30 minutes before and then you are done.

October 23- Medical exam, appointment was at 6:00 am at Clinica De la frontera. Got a picture taken and got a bracelet with a number. Then we had to take a seat and wait for our number, once called we are passed to a little waiting place to get the radiology stuff done. For that you have to remove your shirt and step into a dark room where they take the radiographs front and back. Then you put your shirt back on and are told to go to the blood sample room. The guy just takes some blood out and you head up stairs where there's a women's side and a men's side. They get about 4 at a time and take you into where the rooms are, there they get height, weight and they test your eye sight. After the nurse calls your name and tells you to get into a room and fully undress and put a paper like robe on. So there I am about 20 minutes waiting in the room with just the robe. Then I hear I knock I say "pase" and the doctor walked in I'm not gonna get to specific but he checks everything looking up north. Then asks about drugs, medication and tattoos. Then he leaves and you dress and leave to where there is the female/male seperation waiting room there is a window there they will scan your your bracelet and they tell you which shots you need. Thank god all I needed was the influenza shot the guy before me got six lol. After that you go downstairs and by the elevators are the windows to pay I played a little less than $3500 pesos around $246 dollars I think. I went back at 1:30 pm and got my black packet.

October 27- Interview, at 7:15 am. I didn'tget out till around 10:30 am because there system had crashed but once they were back in about 10 minutes I was called. My interviewer was a whiteguy he began telling me to raise my hand in Spanish and I was like can we have the interview in English please and it looked like he felt more comfortable lol. He only asked "You came to the US in 98?" "When did you return to Mexico?" "How long did you guys dated before marriage?" Then he looked through all the documents he had in his portfolio but didn't ask for evidence of any type. He didn't want to see anything and just said ccongratulations your visa has been approved I was so happy and thanked and walked out as fast as Icould before he regretted it lol.

Good luck to all of you and don't talk to those guys around the plaza by the consulate.

Rating : 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
