If you are not Eligible, don’t worry,  you can come for your Visa Renewal stamping after you got your 1st stamping in home country or any other locations.

If you are eligible, please continue to read below for more information.

Also please read below Mandatory Checklist carefully to make sure you don’t fall into any of the below scenarios for your stamping process to be hassle free.

MANDATORY CHECKLIST BEFORE YOU PLAN : UPDATED : Sep  15th 2020

If your passport validity is less than 6 months, better to renew it & then plan for stamping (In some cases – If you plan to go with passport less than 6 months validity, consulate might not process your visa)

If your visa stamp in passport is still valid > 90 days from now, better to go for next visa renewal stamping once current valid visa is expiring within 90 days.

Note: If your profile is clear without any issues with law or DUI etc., in the past years, you can plan for your US Visa Renewal Stamping in Matamoros Mexico or any locations without any issues.

(Based on the previous folks whom we helped, we created below checklist that can be helpful for upcoming folks who are planning to come to any location in Mexico. (As of Sep 15th 2020) ; 

1) Are you are working as Contractor (EC, EVC, EVVC, EVVVC Model) ?

Do you have client letter ? (Client Letter is Mandatory from May 7th 2019, Lack of that might result in 221g & you might end up 1-3 weeks or even more in Mexico + you need to go through a lot of hassle, so better not to come without client letter ), Its hit or miss depends on the VO if you don’t have client letter. Some asks for it, some don’t. Things changed from 2018 to 2019. so always come with client letter as much as possible. Please check Recent 221g’s due to lack of client letter.

Recently(Mar 2019) 1 guy has to go to India due to lack of client letter too due to their client policy(Client could not respond to the consulate upon request from US consulate), That guy took 1 time visa waiver and entered into US & flew to India,.

Another guy attended visa interview on Apr 6th 2019,  got 221g due to lack of client letter, cleared 221g on Apr 26th 2019( 3 weeks) after escalation at his client location from his manager & submitting client communication etc., & additional documentation, but took 3 weeks to clear 221g.

NOTE : In Matamoros, Some officers are asking for mandatory client letter & some officers are not asking for it, so it’s 50-50 chances of approval without any issues due to lack of client letter.

2) If you don’t have any of the below valid visa / visitors visa ?

1st thing to check yourself is “Whether your profile is clear without any issues or not” ?

(Canadian or Schengen or Japan or Australian or Mexican or Any Valid US Visa).
