Hi Emfox,

As Joerg already told you, you were just put in the waiting queue, but
not rejected.

Hmmm... I see your case as very complicated - First of all, I don't
have your name in the list of people we are getting a visa
for. Mexican visa tramits have proven to be long, tedious, hard... We
were originally told a visa request takes 35 days, and it seems even
that is an optimistic measure. I can almost assure you we won't be
able to get a visa in time.

And as for sending you the money beforehand: International money
transfers is also a tramit that takes around one week, and is
expensive (around 50 dollars per transfer), so we decided to give
refunds, not send pre-sponsorship. 

I'm sorry... But being realistic, I doubt you will be able to make it
in time :-(
