CDJ Immigrant Visa Applicants Update

CDJ Immigrant Visa Applicants

All immigrant visa appointments are canceled at the U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez beginning Thursday, April 30th through Friday, May 8th. The immigrant visa panel physicians will also be closed during this time frame.

All immigrant visa applicants with appointments scheduled on these dates will be rescheduled for June 5th, 8th, and 9th and will receive a new appointment via regular mail. Applicants with serious health emergencies or petitioner’s in the military preparing for deployment may contact us at through our website listed in the last paragraph below. To check rescheduled appointment status, applicants may contact the call center at 01-900-849-4949 (from Mexico) or 1-900-476-1212 (from the U.S.).

Applicants who have already scheduled I-601 waiver appointments will be contacted by our off site scheduling center either by e-mail or phone. At that time, waiver applicants may reschedule a new appointment starting with the first available appointment slot or wait to receive further instructions. Once a reopening date is confirmed the U.S. Consulate General will work to prioritize applicants who rescheduled waiver appointments due to the closure. To check the status of their waiver appointment, applicants or their accredited representatives may contact our call center at 01-900-849-4949 (from Mexico) or 1-900-476-1212 (from the U.S.).

K-1 (fiancée) applicants and approved waiver applicants who have received an open appointment letter may continue with their open appointments after May 8th.

Applicants that have received a letter indicating that your case is pending (221(g)) do not need to schedule a new appointment unless the consular officer has directly asked to interview them again. If the consular officer has asked them to re-interview again, they too may contact the call center for an appointment once we have reopened. If only documents are needed, the applicant may send the documents, passport(s) and a copy of 221(g) letter to the Consulate via DHL at:

Consulado de los Estados Unidos en Ciudad Juárez
Con atención a: Equipo de Casos Rehusados
Paseo de la Victoria #3650, Fracc. Partido Senecú
Cd. Juárez, Chih., México CP 32543
