    Answered . Your husband will need to obtain his immigrant visa at the U.S. Consulate abroad before he enters the United States. He cannot enter the country without the immigrant visa. I would advise consulting with an immigration attorney about the final steps your husband must take before he can enter the United States.

    Answered . Congratulations on the approval of the I-601 waiver! You could contact the US Consulate in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico to be sure that they receive the notice of the I-601 approval. If the I-601 approval takes care of any and all problems of inadmissibility, then your husband will likely be ready to obtain his immigrant visa. You will need to pay a processing fee to US immigration officials. You can see information about that here: http://www.uscis.gov/immigrantfee
    Best wishes to you.

    Answered . He needs to complete the immigrant visa process. He should not reenter the U.S. without the visa because that could create other, even more serious, bars to his admission.

    What steps he needs to take depends in part on how long it has been since his visa interview.
