As we have seen in the last week, flights to Nicaragua continue to be the most requested from Cuba to exit to Mexico on an illegal migration route, from there to find an appointment at the United States border and enter the northern territory , via the CBP One mobile app.
A little over a month ago, a Cuban with the thought of emigrating to the United States contacted our website and assured that it was a very sought-after route since there were cases in which “it is quick, that it is no longer lasts”. a month.” The truth is that everything is a question of “luck and truth”, because half of the appointments are given at random, the other half in the order in which they arrive.
You can get into the “lucky car” or not, disasters can happen, like the Cuban women who prostitute themselves in Mexico while waiting for that appointment, because they are late or end up in the hands of kidnappers, like it recently happened to a Cuban family on the Aztec border. But let’s see what these real cases say, the experiences of thousands of Latinos waiting for a CBP One appointment.
Does the CBP One appointment in Mexico take long?
This is one of the questions that Cubans ask most often before embarking on the adventure of the route from Nicaragua to Mexico, and judging by the images of the Havana and Holguín airports this month, this option seems very attractive to them. Let’s see what they say on this topic in the various Facebook groups.
“The appointment finally came after 2 months and 12 days. I advise you not to change your registration but to stick to the same one you made from the beginning, even if you hear others say that you should change it (…) that When the appointment comes, do not despair, if it doesn’t come randomly and in chronological order, it will come,” commented the Cuban Magela Pérez.
In this case, the Cuban had waited a little over two months, and the date was set for early October, a schedule for the Calexico West border post. In total he had to wait in Mexico for around three months.
Another Cuban already from the United States, Mercedes Noelia Abreu, explained that she and her family also came via the route and that in total she barely had to wait two months in Mexico. The times have been extended slightly and apparently the waiting times for the entire process are on average between two and three months.
