The current COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our daily lives in such distinct way that its effects reached every individual and organization across the globe. The Consulate of Mexico in Seattle was no exception and its activities scheduled in Alaska for 2020 had to be canceled.
As vaccination efforts advance and sanitary restrictions are being lifted, the consulate is pleased to finally be able to resume services in the state, not only with documentation services but also, to strengthen political ties and promote economic opportunities.
The current Head Consul, Hector Ivan Godoy Priske, took office in November 2019 with the commitment to promote Mexican economic and political interests. Consul Godoy Priske holds a Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Humanities, with a specialization in North America, and has written and lectured on the trilateral relationship. He has experience in modernizing Mexican drug policy at both the state and federal level and has worked in NGOs on the topic of North American economic integration.
On September 23th-25th, he will be visiting Juneau and Anchorage to strengthen relations between Mexico and Alaska and encourage bilateral trade and investment. The Consul’s agenda aims to include working meetings with state and local authorities, private sector decision makers, as well as with leaders of the Mexican community.
On the other hand, to alleviate the high demand of documentation services, the mobile consulate office will visit the state for the second time during this semester, serving the Mexican community in Juneau on September 23 and in Anchorage on September 25 & 26. Appointments can be requested sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including full name, phone number and the day of preference.
During the last visit in July, the mobile consulate office was able to serve more than 350 Mexican nationals and process a total of 568 services among them passports, consular ID’s, voter’s ID applications, certified copies of birth certificates and birth registrations for double nationality in a three-day event and is expecting a similar demand in September.
To stay informed regarding the services of the consulate, we invite the community to visit our website consulmex.sre.gob.mx/seattle were details and requirements of all the services the consulate provides can be found, as well as the mobile office confirmed schedule. The Consulate of Mexico in Seattle appreciates the support of Mexican community to continue serving them in the state.
