Sixth District Councilmember Dee Andrews, along with Consul General of Mexico Carlos Manuel Sada Solana, will host the Mexican Mobile Consulate’s coming to Long Beach on Sunday, Aug. 10 from 8am to 2pm at the McBride Teen Center,1520 Martin Luther King, Jr. Ave.
Interested individuals may attend the free event to obtain important documents such as passports and consular ID cards. According to Andrews’s office, many Mexican nationals have difficulty getting to the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles, and this event brings the necessary resources to the community.
“It is a great honor to partner with the City of Long Beach to serve the Mexican citizens,” Solana said. “The community program is a great asset that allows us to reach out to our constituents to render our services where they are based. This spares them the time and expense of traveling to our Los Angeles office.”
Andrews said, “I am excited to be able to reach out to our strong Long Beach Mexican population to assist them with acquiring these important documents.”
The event is open to the general public. All those attending for documents must make an appointment by calling 1-877 MEXITEL (639-4835).
The following documents must be provided during the appointment in order to process services: original birth certificate, an effective official identification with the name on the identification the same as it appears on the birth certificate, proof of address in Los Angeles County, and two passport photos with a white background.
