Changes to Processing H2A Workers at the Consulate as of March 25, 2020

Mexican State of Nuevo Leon where Monterrey consulate is located has closed all streets surrounding the consulate and most of downtown.  The closures prevent large gathering of people and hotels are affected by the shut-down.
The consulate will process workers NOT requiring an interview and return passports with visas to the processors i.e. Del Al.    

Del Al Mexico has changed their operating procedures:
Working in a parking lot because their office is shut down
Workers WILL NOT go to Monterrey on their appointment date.  They will remain home        and stay in touch with Del Al
The worker will be contacted by Del Al when the consulate has returned the passports          with visas
Del al will call the worker directly to travel to Monterrey, pick up the visa and cross                 immediately.
