The municipality of Solidaridad will have a liaison office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) in Playa del Carmen, through which citizens will be able to process their passports and other procedures of that federal agency. In a press release, the municipal government of Solidaridad, added that the office will be installed in Playa del Carmen following recent negotiations with the federal agency.
It explained that Solidaridad needs a municipal liaison office for the reception of documents and delivery of ordinary passports, since, according to data from the SRE in Cancun, between 80 and 100 requests for these procedures per day are from people living in this area.
In this regard, Yazmín Janette Díaz Ojeda, the Senior Official of the City Hall, indicated that the opening of this link, located in Plaza Paseo Corazón, will avoid displacements, expenses and inconveniences for the population residing in the municipality, so now they will be able to request the services provided by this secretariat through the Call Center modality, in this first stage, as a sanitary protocol measure by the COVID-19.
Likewise, the official highlighted the impulse of the City Hall, with the support of different municipal agencies, to have a liaison office of this type, because according to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), Playa del Carmen is the city with the highest population growth nationwide, which has increased, therefore, the citizen demand for these services.
According to the information provided, among the procedures that can be carried out at this office are the reception of documents and delivery of ordinary passports, permits for the incorporation of companies and associations, delivery of certificates of Mexican nationality, dissemination of scholarships, preventive and operative prevention of the interests of Mexicans abroad, among others.
