Mexico’s U.S. Embassy Will Allow Some Visas
On Monday, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City says it will begin processing some immigrant and adoption visas following problems that saw the U.S. consulate in the border city of Ciudad Juarez close briefly in August.
Ciudad Juarez’s consulate is currently the only place that handles immigrant visas in Mexico.
Starting October 1st the embassy will process F4 visas. The F4 visa is restricted to brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens, and their spouses and children. The U.S. citizen must be at least 21 years old.
Back in August, the border consulate closed for two working days for a review of security threats.
On March 13th, drug gangs killed three people tied to the consulate and exploded a car bomb elsewhere in Ciudad Juarez on July 15.
