How to Obtain a Mexican Passport

A Mexican passport is a travel document and official identification. Outside of Mexico, it is the most widely accepted way to identify the holder. You can request a passport for the first time or renew your passport.

In accordance with the modification of the passport rules and regulations, passports valid for up to one year apply to:

  • Children three years of age or less;
  • Individuals who require urgent medical or psychological attention; and
  • Individuals abroad who avail themselves of consular protection.

Mexican passports with a validity of three or six years will be issued to Mexicans of legal age and minors between the 3 and 17 years of age.

Please note that all Mexican passports issued prior to January 1, 2008 that have not yet expired will be valid until the indicated expiration date.

Lastly, all Mexican citizens interested in obtaining or renewing their Mexican passport are reminded that they can request an appointment via the MEXITEL service by calling 1-877-639-4835 free of charge or by going to the closest office.
