Region VII

Welcome to Region VII! Region VII comprises seven southeastern U.S. states along with our friends and colleagues in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Many foreign nationals in Region VII make appointments to apply for a visa at the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. This consulate, as does many others, publishes extensive information on its website that is helpful to visa applicants and international advisers.

NOTE: Security clearance is needed for certain nationalities which may make it impossible for them to apply at a consulate not in their home country. If you are not sure how to advise your students, check with your state's CIPP-RR Assistant.
