Nonimmigrant applicants who apply for visas at the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez must now obtain an Application Support Center (ASC) appointment for biometrics before attending the nonimmigrant visa interview appointment. The ASC is located at the old U.S. Consular post site at Avenida Lopez Mateos 924 N, Fracc. La Playa in Building C. The ASC is open from 8 AM to 1:30 PM, Monday through Friday. The Consulate's goal is to enable applicants to complete their biometrics at the ASC in the morning before the consular interview in the afternoon. However, the same day option is not yet available. It takes approximately 20 to 25 minutes for applicants to drive from the old Consulate building to the new Consulate building in Ciudad Juarez. Currently, applicants have to allot one day for the biometric appointment at the ASC and the following day for the nonimmigrant visa appointment. Currently, the Consulate is not requiring that the ASC and Consular appointments be scheduled on consecutive days.
