Mission Mexico Expands NIV Renewal Interview Waiver Program


Mexico City, June 29, 2012 – "Following President Obama’s efforts to promote travel and tourism as important contributions to job creation and economic growth, the U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce that beginning July 1, 2012, an expanded visa renewal program will allow many more Mexican citizens and residents to renew their nonimmigrant visas without a follow-on interview at the Embassy or a U.S. Consulate. 

Currently, most visas that have been expired for 12 months or less may be renewed after the applicant’s appointment at the Applicant Service Center (ASC), in other words, without a second appointment/interview at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Under our new program, you can apply for a renewal of your visa if your current visa has expired within 48 months or less of your renewal
