When is passport return timeline  ?

  • Passport Return =  Keep minimum of 2 days after visa interview as passport return timeline. (Passport pickup from Consulate itself).
  • If attending visa interview on Friday(you might get passport on Monday or Tuesday)
  • If attending visa interview on Monday(you might get passport on Wednesday mostly or Thursday)
  • In simple – better to book 1 way (or) book return ticket with flight insurance that can help you to make any changes for return flight.

Info from folks who attended visa interview in Monterrey

  • Better to book 1 way and keep the return ticket as per passport availability.
  • Info from Sep 19th 2019 : VO asked for my travel plan, and I said my return flight is tomorrow. He said he’ll give the passport tomorrow as an exception but nobody should assume that SLA is next day. (so better to keep 2 days as buffer)
  • Officer said, we usually recommend you to book once the visa processing is done
  • Plan accordingly and your visa Approval is most important than when you get your passport
Sep 19th: Note : Guys this is important, the VOs are getting a little agitated that most Indian H1B holders are asking for next day passport delivery, it’s important to travel plan according to the given ETA

Sep 19th 2019 : Visa interview questions at Monterrey, Mexico

**************************

So far I’ve found Monterrey pretty safe, language is an issue but you’ll get around.

Arrived Wednesday early morning, ASC appointment  was at Wednesday 12 noon – reached around 11.15am.

They let me in, fingerprints and picture was done within 10 mins. Out by 11.30am. You can keep your phone with you at this location as long as it’s switched off.

Main Consular appointment was at 9.30am today. Reached at 8.45am. Kept my phone at the locker outside the consulate for 40 pesos. Nobody was checking appointment time, there was a single line for everyone. I did observe that there was a huge separate line for what looked like local Mexican citizens(agricultural workers). I’ve never seen so many people (300+) at any consulate before. Anyway so first window I went to was for checking documents, second window was for fingerprinting. The third window after a long wait of 2 hours was for the actual interview.

VO took my documents, questions as follows:-

How long have you been living in the US

Do you have a Green Card application pending

What work do you do for your company

When is your return flight
