The officer of the Civil Registry in Puerto Vallarta, Jaime Castillo Copado, informed that visually impaired people can now request birth, marriage and divorce certificates in Braille, which he described as a significant advance for the inclusion of the entire population and for the effective exercise of their right to identity.

"We extend an extensive invitation to the entire population, but especially to the visually impaired community, who have some congenital or acquired problem, who lack sight and need to have an identity document, in this case a birth certificate, marriage certificate or civil status certificates in general, thanks to the General Directorate we have established a direct link, This service will be completely free of charge for people with disabilities, if they or a family member request it, we only ask them to leave here the record that they want us to print in Braille", he explained.

Mr. Castillo Copado emphasized that this new printing service is free, they only need to go to the Civil Registry Office 01 on the first floor of the Municipal Presidency, from 8:30 in the morning to 3:30 in the afternoon, provide full name, date and place of birth, estimating a delivery date in 15 working days.

"We make a report of visits to the General Directorate in the city of Guadalajara every month, between the 15th and 20th, and we ask them before the fortnight to send us their certificates and we will bring them back from this trip already printed, because they are special machines that perform these functions," emphasized Mr. Jaime.
