Alert: Visa processing moved from Ciudad Juarez to Mexico city

On September 10, 2010 the Department of State issued a Travel Warning to inform U.S. citizens traveling to and living in Mexico of concerns about the security situation in Mexican border regions as well as other areas in Mexico. Adoptive parents, and all travelers to Mexico, should read the warning in its entirety.

Immigrant Visa processing for Adoption Visas moved from Ciudad Juarez to Mexico City on October 1, 2010. We take seriously concerns regarding the safety and security of Americans and Mexicans who visit U.S. Consulates and the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City, and constantly review and scrutinize the security situation. Travelers to and in Mexico should monitor Mexico travel warning for updates.
