MEXICAN TN PROCESSING CHANGES
by Rabindra Singh
The U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Mexico have resumed limited processing of nonimmigrant visas and have reported changes to NIV processing at specific posts.
TN appointments are now only available in Mexico City, Ciudad Juarez, and Guadalajara. Previously scheduled TN appointments in Tijuana will be honored, but expedited appointments cannot be accommodated, and new TN appointments cannot be made.
Applicants should expect a longer-than-normal wait time for this service and plan accordingly. Applicants applying in the same visa class and whose previous visa expired within the last 48 months may be eligible for interview waiver.
Note that the U.S. Department of State has extended the validity of visa payments (known as the MRV fee) until September 30, 2023, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the paid fee.
For the most up-to-date information on which types of visas can be processed at which locations in Mexico, please visit the website for the U.S. embassy and consulates in Mexico.
