Due to recent increases in overall visa applications, the State Department has announced changes to the nonimmigrant E visa application process in Mexico. The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City will not process nonimmigrant E visa applications received on or after July 7, 2015. All E-1 treaty trader visa applications received in Applicant Service Centers on or after July 7, 2015, will be handled by the U.S. Consulates in Monterrey and Tijuana. All E-2 treaty investor visa applications received on or after July 7, 2015, will be handled by the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez.

Questions about the upcoming changes for E-1 treaty trader visas can be directed to the U.S. Consulates in Monterrey and Tijuana through the State Department’s online visa inquiry tool by selecting the appropriate “E-1” classification.

Questions regarding E-2 treaty investor visas can be directed to the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez by selecting the “E-2” classification under “Ciudad Juarez.”

A full list of consulates and their contact information can be found here.
