Discontinuation of Acceptance of Consular Reports of Birth Abroad at San Miguel de Allende

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City and the San Miguel de Allende Consular Agency would like to inform the U.S. citizen community that effective June 2, 2014, San Miguel de Allende will no longer accept or process applications for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad.  All such applications should be made directly to the Embassy in Mexico City. 

The primary responsibility of a consular agency is to provide emergency services such as assistance in death cases, services to crime victims, and other special services.  The discontinuation of acceptance of Consular Reports of Birth Abroad is necessary to ensure that San Miguel de Allende has adequate resources to continue to meet growing demand for emergency and other consular services in Guanajuato.  As the resident U.S. citizen community has grown in recent years, the demand for such services has increased dramatically.  In fact, San Miguel de Allende is the busiest consular agency in the world for passport services.  Moving applications for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad to the Embassy will enable San Miguel de Allende’s staff to focus on its core responsibilities and better serve the community. 

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City accepts Consular Report of Birth Abroad applications by appointment every business day, and makes every effort to provide next-day appointments to applicants ready for interview.  For instructions on how to make an appointment, please visit the Embassy’s website at:


Take advantage of this special summer service and come to renew your child’s passport without an appointment! Simply come to the embassy  any day we are open (see our Consular Calendar)  between 1:30-2:30 pm ONLY (you must enter the Embassy by 2:30 pm) and you will NOT need to schedule an appointment!
