Question: How many visas are processed at the U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez?

Answer: The U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez processed over 94,000 immigrant visas and over 144,000 non-immigrant visas in FY2009. Given the temporary closing of the Consulate, all visa applicants will be rescheduled for their interviews at a later date. The U.S. Consulate will reopen tomorrow.
