Discontinuation for U.S. Citizens of 'Consular Reports of Birth Abroad' in Puerto Vallarta

Consulate General of the United States
June 28, 2014

The U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara and the Puerto Vallarta Consular Agency would like to inform the U.S. citizen community that effective August 1, 2014 Puerto Vallarta will no longer accept or process applications for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad. All such applications should be made directly to the Consulate General in Guadalajara.

The primary responsibility of a consular agency is to provide emergency services such as assistance in death cases, services to crime victims, and other special services. The discontinuation of the acceptance of Consular Reports of Birth Abroad is necessary to ensure that the Puerto Vallarta Consular Agency has adequate resources to continue to meet growing demand for emergency and other consular services in Puerto Vallarta.

As the resident U.S. citizen community has grown, the demand for emergency services has increased dramatically. Moving applications for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad to the Consulate in Guadalajara will enable Puerto Vallarta’s staff to focus on its core responsibilities and better serve the community.

The birth of a child abroad to a U.S. citizen parent(s) should be reported as soon as possible so that a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) can be issued as an official record of the child’s U.S. citizenship. A CRBA can only be created at an American consular office overseas while the child is under age 18. To qualify, at least one of the parents must have been a U.S. citizen on the date of the child’s birth and must have resided in the United States for the required period of time.

The U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara accepts Consular Report of Birth Abroad applications by appointment every business day, and makes every effort to provide next-day appointments to applicants ready for interview. For instructions on how to make an appointment, please visit the Consulate General’s website.
