Cancun, Q.R. — After 23 years, Governor Mara Lezama and Secretary Marcelo Ebrard modernize services for Quintana Roo tourists and visitors. On Thursday, dignitaries inaugurated the new SRE (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) Office in the Cancun Hotel Zone.
The new facilities offer additional services that the previous passport office did not provide. In a statement, Lezama explained that the new SRE office will make data modifications, provide protection services through Mexican consulates in other countries and offer support in locating lost and missing compatriots in other countries. She did note that naturalization processes will no longer be processed in that office.
In addition, the new headquarters will help put an end to the abuses that some managers committed, despite the efforts of the federal authorities.
