US Embassy Will Hold Town Hall Meeting in Zihuatanejo on June 20, 2014 – All US Citizens Invited

state-dept-logoMs. Maureen A. Smith, Deputy American Citizen Services Chief with the United States Embassy in Mexico City, will be the special guest at the luncheon meeting of Club Rotario (Rotary) of Zihuatanejo on Friday, June 20, at 3:00 p.m., at Catalina Beach Resort in Playa La Ropa. All American citizens are invited. The lunch cost is $130 pesos. Lunch reservations are required. Contact: or phone 553-3308. A Town Hall Meeting will follow, starting at 4:30 p.m.

The US State Department closed the Consular Agency Office in Ixtapa in August 2013 as a cost-saving measure. Now, all United States citizens in Guerrero, both residents and tourists, are served by the Consular Agency in Acapulco (or in any other Consulate Office of choice) that is an extension of the US Embassy in Mexico City.

The Town Hall Meeting will provide an opportunity for citizens, both Mexican residents and tourists, to interact directly with the US Embassy. The agenda for the meeting will include:

  • Internal Revenue Service tax changes
  • General services of the US Embassy
  • Contact information
  • Concerns/problems in the local community

Again, everyone is invited to join Club Rotario (Rotary) for a wonderful gourmet lunch. The cost is $130 pesos plus beverages. Lunch reservations are required. Contact, or phone 553-3308.  Reservations are not required for the Town Hall Meeting.
