The U.S. Embassy in Mexico issued an ultimatum: this is the reason why they decided to cancel the payment of visas.

Did you pay the fee for your U.S. visa but still have not scheduled your consular appointment? You should take into account that the U.S. Embassy in Mexico has already issued a new validity for the process.

It is very common for U.S. visa applicants to wait to make an appointment with the consular authorities because the waiting dates are not close, but it is very important that you do it as soon as possible or you could lose your money.

A couple of weeks ago, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico issued an ultimatum to the applicants of the credential that allows legal entry to the U.S., since it informed that the payment of the visas that are going to get it for the first time or are going to renew it, will be valid for one year starting October 1, 2023.

That is why if you made the payment before October 1, 2022 and still do not schedule the appointment, you may lose the money you paid and you will have to do it again.

On the other hand, if you made the payment after October 1, 2022 but the year is about to expire, it is ideal that you schedule the appointment before the expiration date so that it does not expire.

According to the U.S. Embassy in Mexico, there are many people who have not scheduled an appointment to obtain their visa in the hope that they will find an early date, but it is advisable to do it as soon as possible, although currently there are only available for the year 2025.
