As of today, Solidaridad (where Playa del Carmen is located) will have a liaison office with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which will issue passports starting this Monday, saving time and money for the residents of Solidaridad and neighboring municipalities, who will no longer have to travel to Cancun, where 80 out of every 100 applications were from the people of Solidaridad, according to data from the same ministry.
This was announced by the municipal president of Solidaridad, Lili Campos Miranda, during the Fifteenth Ordinary Session of the Honorable City Council of the Municipality of Solidaridad, where she pointed out the importance of bringing these offices closer to the Solidarenses with a tourist vocation, which is why it is expected to authorize 20 to 50 passports daily since Playa del Carmen is the city with the highest population growth at a national level, which increases the demand for these services.
To guarantee the quality of service, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs trained the personnel for two months. Jorge Alberto Vázquez Oropeza, with a marine vocation, lawyer, and master's degree, who will operate the liaison offices, obtained the best qualification in this training, given his experience and professionalism, which is why Campos Miranda urged him to provide a service up to the standards of the government she heads.
Likewise, the mayor mentioned that the collection of the new municipal liaison office would be 289 pesos per passport and could reach more than 100 thousand pesos per month, which would allow it to be self-sustainable and independent, through the generation of its resources.
