 & Consular(visa interview) date is on June  25. 

Plan to arrive on June 23rd (a Day before Fingerprints) before 9 PM or 10 PM CST to Mexico City Airport.

Plan to book return flight based on passport return timeline.

When to book my Return Ticket : (Book your return ticket flexible)

You can book your return ticket from Mexico City based on the passport return timeline(usually 3rd or 4th day after visa interview) from the consulate.

Most of the case : Better to book 1 way, else on 2nd day after visa interview(provided there is a facility to change return flight dates) after visa interview

1) Hotel is near by to US Consulate & ASC , has Wifi, safe location

2) Near by to Many other Restaurants

3) Tip : Install “Google Translator”, so it can be useful for any communication.

Please find below email ID to send email to US Consulate if you have any questions ?

The information printed on an issued U.S. visa should match the information in the applicant’s passport. If you discover an error (misspelling, error in the date of birth, error in the expiration date, etc.) on your U.S. visa, the applicant or a designated proxy can contact the Consular Section via: 

Mexico City Email : Visas_Mexico@state.gov

What you can carry & can’t carry to your ASC & Visa interview ? A) Do I need to carry passport or Visa size photos with me ? 

Answer: Not needed, your digital photos will be taken at ASC – Fingerprints appointment. 

B) What can I carry ? What can’t I carry ? 

Answer : The mandatory documents that you should take to the ASC office are: 

*Any Old passport (If Applicable)

* I-797 * Passport 

* DS160 confirmation page But if you have all your documents in 1 file already organized , then take everything with you. 

*VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE:* You are not allowed to take inside to the ASC or consulate offices the following items: 

*Electronic devices such as cell phones ,laptops , headphones , USB flash drives, cell phone chargers, smart watches and any cable adapters. 

* lip balms , plastic combs , nail clippers , scissors, cosmetics, medication, sunglasses, food, water , candies, chewing gums and toys. 

* for women, you are not allowed to take your handbag

NOTES : About submitting new DS160 incase if there are any mistakes in old DS160 used for visa dates booking process.

Today we had appointment at ASC, Mexico City.
My wife’s appointment was with an old DS-160 and then we recently submitted another DS-160 due to an error in the passport number.
I could not update Appointment with new DD-160 online as the site do not let you do so once the appointment is confirmed.
But happy news is that, ASC can do an update to the appointment with new DS-160 and that was not an issue at all. So guys,
do not cancel your appointment if you want to change the DS-160. Simply go to the ASC on the appointment day with your new DS-160 and they will update it for you.

Any feedback you want to leave for our team (or) any suggestions for upcoming clients, excellent service, process became very easy because of your service. My husband is going to come next by taking your service


+1, I echo the same thoughts. This team has been super helpful in not just getting the visa stamped and picking up passport. They’ve been there for me (and others here) every step of the way and took great care to make sure everything went smoothly. Language was a bit of problem in different places and Jorge and team stepped in when needed. I couldn’t have done this well otherwise. @Jorge Mexico City Team is a rockstar. He is not just a driver, but a thorough professional in every way. He is very calm, composed, fully understands the entire process and always suggests based on what is right for you. I can’t thank him, Ernesto, Venkat, Ivan and the rest of the team here enough. THANK YOU!

May4th : H1B Visa Renewal Stamping in Mexico City : Non-emergency appointment

Here is a little more feedback on my visa appointment process, hope it’s helpful.

Your first name : Venkat

Appointments location : Mexico City

Appointments dates: May 4 (Same day ASC and Visa interview appointments)

Current visa stamped in passport category H1B

Previous visa in passport: H1B

Questions asked during interview:

  1. What to do you do for Salesforce (just title of my job was enough, didn’t need to explain)
  2. Not a question, but re-confirmed previous employment details
    (that’s it! In general, the process is very smooth, and everyone is very helpful. Only thing I would recommend is to try harder for requesting the passport pickup soon, which I missed and didn’t get a pink slip while others got at Mexico City)

Documents requested:

  1. Original I-797A Approval document
  2. Employment verification letter
    (other than DS-160 confirmation and appt letters you need anyway)

When did you get your passport? Got the passport back on May 6th! (May 5th was a holiday for embassy so it was relatively quick even without a pink slip) For me, ASC and DHL locations are the same. So, though I was supposed to wait until passport is “processed” and arrive at the ASC location, I was able to talk to people at the Embassy and request the passport earlier citing travel reasons (print out of the flight ticket helped here, and Jorge helped a lot in the process as well)

Is this emergency appointment (or) non-emergency appointment ? Non emergency

When did you start visa stamping process for mexico ? Late April (I was lucky to be able to reschedule my Mexico appt from August to May 4 within just a week.)

When and where was your last time Visa stamping in your passport (Before attending in Mexico) ? India

Please share any tips you think will useful for getting emergency appointments (or) non-emergency appointments?
You should keep looking. I found evenings on Friday/Saturday/Sunday to be generally good for finding availability though other people mentioned mornings 7am to 9am cst working better for them

Any feedback you want to leave for our team (or) any suggestions for upcoming clients.

  1. Check for US embassy holidays in mexico (I didn’t know May 5th and May 10th are holidays. I would’ve planned my schedule differently if I knew ahead)
  2. Always request for early passport pickup at the end of your interview (you’ll get a pink slip if approved)
  3. You can get covid test results done at the Airport, if you run into any issues before that (which I ran into)
  4. Always check back at Embassy (whether or not you received pink slip) regarding passport readiness after the interview. You may be told that it will not be ready soon, but someone else will likely tell you differently.
  5. Don’t forget to have the immigration card (FMM) ready before you board the flight back to US.
