Consulate Review: Juarez, Mexico
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 12, 2008
Embassy Review : so we got to the consulate at 730am. We told the guard that we had a k1 open appointment and he didnt make us get in the long line of people that had set apps. He escorted us to entrance 1. At that moment he had her pull out her invitation and hers and her daughters passport. She was then let in and was sent to room C and they asked for the invitation and the proof of payment from Banamex and they then gave her a number. It is not by order so dont expect to be called on order. Then they called her and she went to window 9 and they then asked for all her documentation that was requested. She was not given a specific list of what was needed, just to hand over all her paperwork. After that they told me to sit down and wait to be called for fingerprints. At around 45 min after they took my fingerprints. Then they told me to go to room B for the interview. There they just call your number is given. About 45 min after they called me to window 31. He asked her for photos wich she kept on her in a photo album. The book wouldnt fit through the slot on the window hehe... so she had to turn them page by page against the window. Then he asked her what I did for a living, if we were married and where will she reside once she gets the visa. He then said "ok ..your visa will be ready in 3 hours...please wait in room B". They then called my name at window x at around 3:30 and they handed me 2 manila packets that have to be turned in to immigration at point of entry and the 2 passports with the visa placed neatly on one page.
While she was inside I went across the street to this place called Don Beto's where they do visa work for you. They charged me 200 pesos for a plastic chair so I can sit under a tarp all day. It was pretty warm and the sun was beating on my face. I got a damn sun burn! They even charged to use the filthy room they called a bathroom for 100 pesos. Thank god I only had to do #1. Theres a cafe next door with wireless access if you decide to bring a laptop. So I got chewed out by my fiance since I forgot to give her money to buy food. A nice lady inside gave her some money so her daughter can get some chips and soda. My fiance came out at around 4pm and I already knew she got the visa since people that came out early came out sad or crying cuz they didnt get the visa or they forgot some kind of paperwork. Everyone kept saying around me that if they are there after 2pm or so that they are waiting for the visa. My fiance got the interview at about 10 -1030 or so. So she basically waited all day for the actual visa to be prepared. She got approved in 3 hours more or less.
Well I hope this will help out in some way. Good luck to everyone thats headed there........

Julio and Juany.

*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
