TN Visa Processing in Mexico is Now Available Only at Three Consular Posts

The U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Mexico have resumed limited processing of nonimmigrant visas. TN Visa appointments are now available only in Mexico City, Ciudad Juarez, and Guadalajara. However, previously scheduled TN appointments in Tijuana will be honored, but expedited appointments cannot be accommodated, and new TN appointments cannot be made.


Since only three posts process TN visa appointments, applicants may experience significant delays for visa appointments. It is advised that applicants make note of this and plan accordingly. If applicants have an urgent need for travel, they may request an emergency appointment by following the guidance found here .


Applicants applying in the same visa class and whose previous visa expired within the last 48 months may be eligible for interview waiver.  Applicants may schedule a renewal appointment here. Routine appointments for applicants not ordinarily resident in Mexico are not available at this time.


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.
