Mexican birth certificates may be processed in consulates

Mexicans living in the United States or anywhere in the world can process starting the last week of January or early February birth certificate at consulates. The only requirement is that the person has been registered at the country’s civil registry. The procedure will be free like the first copy.

The birth certificate will be a key document in the program of Immigration Relief announced by Barack Obama as well as being an official identity document recognized in Mexico for any official paperwork that has to do with the government, banks and other lending institutions and private initiative.

The "Your birth certificate wherever you are" program, in which all states participate, also benefits Mexicans that live in Mexico, where they can go to the registrar office that is more convenient to them to get their birth certificate.

Access to this document is able thanks to the digitization of birth certificates in all states. The Secretary of the Interior Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said that currently 92 percent of the total are already scanned and will be available in any civil registry of Mexico and its embassies.

In Arkansas, contact the Little Rock Mexican Consulate at (501) 372-6933, Ext 2. For additional information visit
