If you’ve recently gone through a visa process (good or bad), I’d love to hear about it so I can help people in the future!

Please note: They have since changed the rules (as of August 27) so that you can only pay the appointment fee in cash to a bank branch within Mexico before scheduling the interview which makes it a little more problematic – they no longer accept credit card payment online

First time E3 visa at Monterry. Came on backpacking to explore the US and became fond of it and wanted to explore further. Looked for new jobs. E3 is so new and not many employers wanted to take a punt at it.. but I was upfront with them and found one. Went to Monterrey. They asked a lot of questions testing my ability to do the job as I said. in the end, they approved. I explored the city waiting for my visa. it's a one-week wait after it's approved. That one week gave me chance to explore Mexican culture and i became of fond of it.
