    Wow what a strong group of people! Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us and I can't wait for the day I can file my i212. Still have 3 years left but after everything we've been through it doesn't sound or seem like very long.
    I have a 9c ban that ends on 12/3/2020.

    Currently reside in Mexicali, Mexico, waiting out my ban with my family.

    Best of luck to you and your family Bendite. I hope you get an approval soon. Shouldn't be too long since you are at 12 months. Keep your head up.

    i-212 waiver after 10 years with i212 a 9 c

    Thanks jaialihurtado. Yes, we did our own packet. We created a cover with a table of contents, a case brief summarizing the history and positive factors of the case for my husband, copies of civil documents and character letters and then we created a tab with evidence for each year outside of the U.S. We did not originally translate everything, but received an RFE at 14 months asking us to do so, so then we translated, had it certified and resubmitted as the response to the RFE and then we received the approval 8 days later, at 15 months.

    Here's our consulate experience: Friday, 11/3
    We arrived at CMI at 10:25, 15 minutes early for my husband's medical appointment at 10:40. He got a blur bracelet and they sent us back to a second building to register.
    They took his consular appointment instruction letter, appointment confirmations & vaccine records.
    They asked, "where did you travel from, how did you get here, what hotel are you staying at?" and then told him to sit in the orange ticketed seats. I went to the waiting area.
    They called him up to the numbered windows at 10:35. They asked him his name, DOB & where he was from. Then they took his right fingerprint, they took a photo and he signed.
    10:40 he walked to a small area to the right of the windows & he did an eye exam & they took his temp. 10:41, asked for a urine sample but he had just used the restroom before we came, so he had to wait (be sure to tell your spouse to "hold it" before their appt...hahaha). At 10:44 he was told to follow the arrows back over to the 1st building.
    He sat in one area to take blood then was sent to stand in line to wait for his x-ray. Sat and waited 20-30 minutes to be passed to an exam room where he was asked to take everything off except for underwear and socks. He waited 30 minutes for the Dr. to enter. The Dr. took his weight, height & blood pressure. The Dr. asked if he ever had surgeries, asked about his tattoo, what it signified, did he use drugs, had he ever been to jail, and if he was in any medication.
    Instructed to follow arrows to get vaccines. They told him the amount and he was asked if he agreed. He had to wait 30 more minutes, sign & then they have him the vaccines.
    Then he had give the urine sample.
    He was then passed to the register to pay.
    At 12:30 he came out. He got 3 vaccines. The cost was $420 total for medical and vaccines. Instructed to return Monday after 7:00 a.m. for results because labs would not be ready.

    Monday, 11/6
    Biometric appointment was at 7:30 at CAS (ASC)
    Left the hotel at 7:15. We were in walking distance to everything.
    Arrived a couple minutes later, but they were taking appointments by time & were allowing those with appointments at 7:10 to enter.
    They Asked us to wait on the curb until 7:30 was called.
    At 7:25 they called 7:30 to line up
    My husband took the whole packet, with the appt confirmation letter, visa instruction letter & DS-260 confirmation in the front, with his passport & ID ready.
    Any other paperwork is in the folder if needed.
    The line for 7:30 was allowed to enter at 7:30 and all had entered by 7:35.
    He came out at 7:44
    They stapled a small blue piece of paper to the top right of his visa appointment letter & the consular appointment time was written on label at the bottom of the DS-260 confirmation page
    Both pages were stapled together inside the passport, which they also labeled with his consular appointment information.

    After that, we went back to CMI to pick up the medical packet. Arrived around 7:50. I went to the waiting area again & he stood in line at the numbered windows with just 1 woman in front of him. He was called up at 7:55.
    At 8:00 we left without the packet and were told to come back at 11 because they were still processing the last labs from Friday that morning.
    We returned to the clinic at 11:55 and retrieved the xray and vaccine record. Ready for the next day!

    11/7
    We left the hotel at 8:20 to arrive 20 minutes early for the visa interview, per the CAS suggestion. At 8:20 he got in line and I came to wait at the bridge. He took the entire packet, with the appt confirmation, DS-260 confirmation, instruction letter and passport on top. Copies & originals of all civil documents are in the packet. Affidavit of support and copies of my identifying documents also included.
    10:15 he came out because we had to pay the visa fee again. Online it showed paid, but that was from 2006, so we had to pay again. No worries! I'll pay again. He re-entered, paid the fee and got back in line. He sat in black chairs to wait. He was called up very last. He was asked, "who was your petitioner, when was the 1st time you crossed, did you cross again after that, when did you leave the U.S. for the last time, do you have a record with the police in the U.S. or Mexico, do you have tattoos, what does it signify?" Then he typed for 5 minutes.
    Waiting and waiting oitside, I was the last one on the bridge. And finally at 12:50 he came out. Approved!!! He was last in line after having to go back in to pay the fee! But he's approved and that's what matters. Tears of joy, tears of relief...what a long day!
    11 years 5 months 11 days in Mexico & now we know it's just a few more until we can go home together!

    I'll post more when we get the DHL waybill info and when we pick up the visa. We're waiting in Juarez.
