One last thing, make sure you have everything on the checklist and have as much physical presence evidence as possible. I have my high school and university transcript and my old passport. So I hope that's enough, good luck
Thanks for all the detailed answers, it helps me feel better. I have 2 tickets (highway patrol), my high school and university transcripts but they say unofficial as they were e-mailed to me, my high school diploma which is apostilled, my old green card that says I was a resident since 2001 (I´m a naturalized citizen) and my passport I hope these papers are enough!If you have everything in order and filled out, everything should be ok. They asked for evidence and I turned over high school and university transcripts and my old passport.
When I filled the form where it says 24. Precise Periods of time in the United States I wrote the time I lived there 2001-2010 and then every time I enter Ex: June 01,2011 - june 10, 2011, August 10,2012 - August 12,2012, and so on... I tried to write as much as I remember as I travel constantly. Did you write more info somewhere else?[background=rgb(252, 252, 252)] Just some advice, the worker was happy that I filled out a detailed history of my time in the USA. He said a lot of people don't do that, and it helps to be as detailed as possible with as much evidence as possible. [/background]
I read that is U$100 for the CRBA, U$105 for the passport...how much for the SSN? Do you know if you pay in pesos if they take the official? Do you pick up the docs from the DHL or from the embassy? I know I know lots of questions haha![background=rgb(252, 252, 252)]The embassy worker reviewed all our paperwork, we then signed a couple of forms, swore an oath and he said we were good to go for our Babies passport, CRBA, and SSN. We turned in the DHL waybill that we bought last week and he said you will receive everything in two to three weeks. I asked does that mean we will have in hand everything in two to three weeks and he said yes. [/background]
The name of the appt is something like CRBA/Passport/SSN. They looked at me like no one had ever requested the social security card at their appt. They referred me to SSA desk and then told me that the CRBA/Passport had to be completed first....in our hands.How much for the SSN?
I look through my appt and it doesn´t say anything about SSN. I sent them an email asking about it and also asking how much longer will it take if I want the CRBA apostilled as I´m in a little bit of a hurry.The name of the appt is something like CRBA/Passport/SSN.

Nice. Maybe we caught them on a bad day. Sounds very easy now. My wife and I are both from the US. They looked at us like we were crazy when we asked for an SSN.Yet during the "turning in of all the documents" the embassy worker asked me if I wanted to do SSN as well and I said yes why not. She handed me a paper and I filled it out in five minutes and that was that.
So I wouldn't worry about it, just make sure you mention you want the passport, CRBA and SSN.
