Consulate Review: Juarez, Mexico
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 15, 2007
Embassy Review : The interview process would have been relatively hassle-free for us,except for the fact that they closed the consulate on the Thursday before Veterans' Day. We arrived on Tuesday, Nov.7 (flew in from Toluca), did the medical on the 8th, got turned away on the 9th--a Thursday-- (without prior notice they refused even people with appointments!!), and of course the next day was Veterans' Day so the consulate was closed until MONDAY so we basically just stayed in our hotel room for four days straight (Rafa was skeched out about Juarez! No offense to those who are from there or who like it but it does NOT have a nice vibe about it....)
So when he finally had his interview the officer was super-friendly and nice, he said our case was so romantic (awww), and that he had no problem whatsoever with anything and CONGRATULATIONS! Of course Rafa had never been to the US before so that made everything easier for our case.
But having to spend an extra 3-4 days there was a major hassle, and was completely unexpected, we had to change our plane tickets and ended up spending quite a bit on the hotel.

*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
