Before asking for a passport, registration, birth certificate or power of attorney in the Mexican Consulate, check exactly which documents you need, and ensure that all of them meet the specifications established by applicable laws and regulations. Asking for any document does not guarantee its issuance since the staff of the Consulate must verify the authenticity and correctness of your papers. To avoid any annoyances, prepare yourself before the appointment by observing the following considerations:
It is your responsibility to check that your information is correct in any official document you submit.
The information in your photo ID must match that which is on the document you use to prove your nationality. For example, if the identification that you will present is a driver’s license issued by the state of Alaska, it must have exactly the same name as your birth certificate.
The Consulate cannot accept as a valid document licenses or ID cards showing by mistake your second last name as a middle name. If your ID has such a mistake you should request a correction in the office that issued it.
You do not need to bring copies of your documents, as only original documents will be accepted.
The Consulate will not accept documents with alterations, amendments, laminating and/or omissions of any kind, including the date of birth, date of registration or nationality of the parents. The lack of official seals or authorized signature will also be reason for rejection. Illegible documents or those obviously faked will not be accepted.
If you have any questions concerning the documents you have available to perform a procedure, ask advice at the Mexican Consulate to see the alternatives for your case. Call or send an email to their of ces in Seattle: (206) 448 3526, email@example.com.
