The U.S. Mission in Mexico has announced two changes in the procedures for applying for and renewing E-1 Treaty Trader and E-2 Treaty Investor visas in Mexico.

Firstly, beginning July 1, 2012 the U.S. Mission in Mexico will centralize all E-visa adjudications in Mexico. After July 1, all review of E visa applications in Mexico will occur at the following three posts:

  1. U.S. Embassy in Mexico City;
  2. U.S. Consulate General in Monterrey;
  3. U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana.

Secondly, all submissions of documents in support of the application must be organized and presented in the standardized format as described for E-1s and E-2s on the U.S. Mission website. Applicants are therefore advised to check and follow the instructions on the U.S. Embassy, Mexico website regarding the documents related requirements.

The Mission has also informed that scheduling of appointments and payment of fees will continue to be done through online services and call center, and applicants may continue to choose any one of the 14 Applicant Service Centers (ASC) throughout Mexico to provide the required biometrics. The ASC will then schedule appointments for interviews in one of the three processing posts mentioned above, based on applicant’s preference and appointment availability. Documents in support of the application may be submitted in person at the ACS in Mexico City, Monterrey or Tijuana or mailed directly by the applicant to the visa section which will conduct the interview and adjudicate the visa.
