Event Description
Review Date : June 1, 2018
Embassy Review : We want to share our experience at Juarez city and We hope this can help for someone.

Medical Exam
We arrived to Juarez at Sunday night and the Medical exams appointment was schedule for tuesday at 7 am at Clinica Medica Internacional so we had the monday free and we decided went to Clinic for asked if they can pick up us the appointment's day, but a woman there told us if I wanted to take the exam in that moment and we decided and yes so I took the Medical exam, the medical exam started maybe 9:30 am and finished between 11 and 11:30. Everyone in the clinic were very kind and profesional and We picked up the result at 2:30 PM the same day.

The Biometric appontment was schedule tuesday at 1:10 pm. we arrived at 12:40 and they permited me enter to the offices there all was really fast maybe 10 minutes in all process.

Consular interview

The consular interview was programed for the thursday at 8:45 am. We arrived to the consulate 7:15 am and asked if I could start the process and they responded me yes. Then in that moment we started the interview process. Again everyone there were very kind and profesional. Please you take care to have all documentation complete.

After wait for maybe 50 minutes I arrived with the first officer and I gave her :
+ The Consular letter ( the letter and my passport in the biometrics the officer puted it a sticker)
+ My Passport
+ Original and copy of my fiance's birth certificate and mine also.
+Original and copy of my police certificate
+ DS 160 confirm
+Form 134 affidavit support and copy of Income tax and W2 of 2017.
+2 photos

That officer asked me confirm the my fiance's name and his USA address, she also asked me Where was my finace in that moment and I responded her than he was at Juarez, outside of the Consulate.

After that she told me I had to wait in Black chair for my Interview and maybe I waited 1 hour and then I had my interview, the officer did me the next questions:
+ The age my fiance and Mine
+ If we had kids together
+ If we got married before
+When and How we meet us
+ I had Tourist visa then he requested it and I gave him it
+ How many times I meet in person to my fiance
+ How a long time was the most time I was in USA

After that he was typing for few minutes than for me were like hours and he told me All look very ok for us if we have other questions We will contact with you and your visa has been approved and in will take 3 weeks for arrive to DHL and give the green paper , I only respond him Thank you

*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
