Consulate Review: Juarez, Mexico
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 28, 2015
Embassy Review : My husband traveled to Juarez July 21st (Tuesday), arrived in Juarez the 22nd (Wednesday) at 9am. He checked into the Conquistador Inn. He got his medical exams done that same day. He paid a total of $350 for both the exam and the 3 vaccinations he was given. He got his results the next day (Thursday). On Saturday July 25th, he went to his biometrics appointment at the ASC. Finally, he went to his consular interview on the 27th (Monday). His appointment was t 8:45am. He arrived at 8:15am. He only took about an hour and 45 minutes in there. The officer asked him when and how we met, name of his children, when he came into the U.S, and if he had ever been arrested. The officer reviewed everything himself and after a while of reading he told my husband that he was approved! The officer told my husband he should receive his passport in about 5 days at the DHL center, but he got it in 3!.. Finally, this is all over after almost 3 years! We can breathe!

*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
