US Consular in Ixtapa Closes / Information for US and Canadian Consular Agencies in Acapulco

Canada_and_USA_FlagAs a cost-saving measure the US State Department has reduced the number of Consular Agencies in Mexico from thirteen (13) to nine (9), resulting in the closure of the Consular Agency in Ixtapa, effective August 31, 2013. The US Consular Agency in Ixtapa had been in service since 1997.

Now all United States citizens in Guerrero, both Mexican residents and tourists, will be served by the Consular Agency in Acapulco or in any other Consulate Office in Mexico of choice.  The US Embassy in Mexico City is available 24 hours/day for emergencies.  Canadian citizens in Guerrero continue to be served by the Consular Agency in Acapulco and by the Canadian Embassy in Mexico City.

 General Services of United States and Canadian Consular Agencies

The United States and Canadian Consular Agencies accept passport applications and renewals and birth applications. Application must be made in person, but the documents may be delivered to you by carrier. The Consular Agencies provide Notary Services.  Most importantly, the Consular Agencies provide emergency services to foreign citizens and tourists in cases of destitution, arrest, illness, death or other special circumstances.  Consular Agencies do not provide visa services or information regarding visas.
