Why do interview appointments at Ciudad Juarez take so long to arrive?
In brief, the reason why interview appointments at the United States consulate in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico take a long time to arrive is because the consulate is the busiest consulate in Mexico.
In fact, the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez is the busiest consulate in the world. The U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez is the only consulate in Mexico that interviews and adjudicates immigrant visas (green cards). This consulate also reviews non-immigrant visas as well as a multitude of other matters. In 2000, for example, the consulate processed an average of 500 visa applications a day for a total of approximately 84,087 visas a year.
That is why, visa appointments take so long to arrive. The consulate only schedules an interview whenever it knows it has an open space. Therefore, if your name is next on their list, you will receive notification of your interview. The notice usually arrives one month to one-month-and-a-half before the scheduled interview at the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
