US Passports for Mexican nationals aren’t easy to come by – but Mexican passports are if you live in North Carolina. Approximately 400 Mexican nationals attended Concord High School’s Mexican Passport Event earlier this month. The 400 people were there to apply for Mexican passports and additional forms of Mexican identification.
The passport event had a purpose – to ensure that Mexican citizens have proper identification from the Mexican government.
Just to clarify – no US Passports were issued at the event. The Mexican passports and government-issued picture IDs (matricula consular cards) were provided to passport applicants who supplied birth certificates and additional documentation.
Mexican nationals need valid passports to get back into Mexico once they return home. The matricula consular card can be used as a form of identification in the United States.
Many Mexican nationals cannot open up bank accounts because they do not have US Passports or other necessary forms of identification. However, people with both a matricula consular card and a Mexican passport can open up bank accounts.
The matricula card can also be used to provide proof of identity for such things as enrolling children in school or applying for credit. It is also enables Mexicans to obtain an individual tax identification number from the IRS so that they may pay US income tax.
Many of the Mexicans who attended the event needed to obtain a passport so that they could use them as identification during trips back to Mexico.
