The Ministry of Foreign Relations (SRE) in Yucatán will open headquarters in mid-December, when he moved from the facilities he has occupied for 23 years in Paseo de Montejo to a larger space in The Harbor shopping center, informed Carlos Alfonso Candelaria López, general director of the passport office.

He specified that the new facilities in the north of Mérida will be five times wider.

What’s more they will have twice the staff “to serve at least two thousand people a day with comfort, efficiency and speed from 8 am to 8 pm, Monday to Sunday.”

New concept in passport issuance

The concept called “Turnkey”, which is already applied in 9 of the 47 passport issuing offices in the country, is a strategy aimed at modernizing and making the service they provide more efficient.

They are installed in squares and shopping centers under a scheme similar to that used by anchor establishments.

That is, by mobilizing large flows of customers or users, they obtain a moderate income per square meter in return.

The idea is that the high flow of users of the passport offices of the SRE increase the commercial flow of the square, especially now that it will attend longer hours.

This modernization of spaces, which will have Waiting rooms with climate, play areas for children, pet area and Wi-Fi signal, will make the wait for the issuance of passports, which will be delivered the same day, less tedious.

Along with the new space, Carlos Calendaria anticipated the broadcast of the first Mexican electronic passports with chip integrated.

The new ones would begin to be delivered as the current model booklet is finished, which will continue to be valid according to its validity.
