    Filing DS-260 with a CDJ case number

    I don't know how many people are still in this situation, but I feel like I keep seeing this predicament around here. Member Curtis Kent has posted how to file the DS-260 when your case number begins with "CDJ" rather than "MEP", most likely due to your case being an older one that got to the NVC before Mexico started doing Electronic Processing. Today he confirmed that they had success in CDJ using this method. I added his method to the MEP sticky in the NVC section, and here is what it says:

    I got the letter saying that my wife needed to fill out the DS-260, we have a CDJ case number. No invoice ID was ever assigned. The NVC has no record of our case. Ciudad Juarez could not help, we also sent a fax to them requesting the info.

    Then I found this: http://ciudadjuarez.usconsulate.gov/step2_iv.html
    It says after a bit of examination that our invoice id is the applicants date of birth, "*Please note: Cases with no NVC Invoice number may enter the applicant's date of birth in the following format - YYYYMMDD- as a substitute invoice number."

    With that we were able to sign in to http://ceac.state.gov/IV/Login.aspx , the DS-260 and start the application. It later asks for a beneficary ID number or something like that, we also were not given that number, we ended up putting the numbers that come after the CDJxxxxx in your case number, and it let us complete the form.

    Our appointment in Juarez is the 10th of June. I will follow up on this after that if the info I gave here turns out to be wrong. But it should be good because we got it done.

    Good luck everyone!
