Consulate Review: Juarez, Mexico
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 11, 2019
Embassy Review : This was a pretty smooth process for us. My fiance had his medical exam 2 days prior to the interview. I flew into El Paso and he picked me from there after his exam. He did biometrics the next day in Juarez. They did not let me inside so I waited outside. He was probably inside about 20 minutes. They will not let you in more than 10 or 15 minutes before your appointment. I would recommend not showing up there very early. The day of the interview he drove to the embassy, parked at the mall, and then walked over. He said that he did wait for awhile before the interview. They did not ask to see any of my financial information, or really anything that he brought with him except his passport photos. They returned the pictures that we had submitted with our original petition. They asked where we were going to live, did I own my house, where I worked, what tattoos he had, if I had any tattoos, what he wants to do in the US for work. Overall it was a good experience.
Rating : Very Good

hey! my fiancé and I are going through the same experience you went through..everything was smooth and quick until it came to scheduling the interview. right now the ‘soonest’ available date is january 17...i’m not ready to have to wait a longer time for the interview than what it took to be processed. how often and at what time did you check the site for a earlier interview? this feels exhausting and discouraging. :(

Hi Rtilton! I would say just go ahead and schedule for Jan. 17. I am pretty certain that you will be able to move your date up. We moved ours 3x times and could have had our interview sooner than October but we wanted more time to get things together etc. We were originally scheduled for Dec. 6. I checked the site daily both early morning and at night.

*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
