It is a wonderful experience and I am extremely happy for the kind of hospitality provided to me by all your team members to support from end-to-end.
Your team made everything soo simple and easy. I never felt like I am away from my home, As your team provided all the support. They were always in touch with me from all the time for any kind of information and supported me very well from the time I started the process till end. Venkat is always there to help in giving all the information and has lot of patience. Ivan has lot of patience and will always be there to make sure everything is going good. Jessica is really cool and soo kind hearted, She is really good at giving information about the Visa process and local details. Ismae was also very helpful and we had conversation about the Mexico history driving from US to Mexico. Maria and Kareen are awesome chefs, They made me feel like I am having my home food, which is very delicious. It is never to be forgotten about the food which I had it here for 3 days in the guest house. Altogether I am glad and very happy to opt this process and had a successful journey. I would 100% recommend my friends to get through this process for stamping.

Suggestions for upcoming clients:
In Hermosillo, There will be three counters altogether.
First Counter: Security guard asked me for Immigration form, I said I came by driving and I was not given any form, they said Okay and allowed me to get in. They wont allow you to carry file or folder for documents. you need to carry all documents by hand. Also, they will not allow you to carry mobile, digital watches, electronics gadgets.
Second Counter: They will ask your first name last name DOB and ask you when are you planning to travel to US. I said I have flight ticket booked on next day of interview. So he gave me blue color slip and asked me to pickup passport in same location(Hermosillo Consular) at afternoon 3PM on next day of interview.
Third Counter: VO asked questions and I answered as mentioned above and my stamping got approved.

Me & my family(E3 visa folks) are back in Chicago .. thank you guys for all your help.
you made this so stress free & seamless! Gracias!!! 🙂
thank you for looking after us in Hermosillo .. you are a great host/guide and Maria is a very good cook .. gracias!! 🙂

Nov 8th 2019 : Sudhakar & his Wife : A Family (Couple) recommended as below.

Miguel is good and also I would like to recommend everyone to come and stay in Maria house(GuestHouse) rather than in hotel.
She is cooking good food and she live downstairs which will be safe to stay and can get food downstairs.

Staying in hotel will make us suffer for food and guest house is good with big rooms and with clean and neat rest rooms.
Dryer and washer and if someone want to cook your own food can cook in Maria kitchen.

Thank you for letting us know about GuestHouse Option, also Guesthouse is located in good ans safe community.

Just doing a recommendation to other people who comes here.
