Twice a year the Guatemalan consulate in New York organizes a “mobile consulate” that travels to various areas to provide consular services to people residing in those towns. Several thousand people usually take advantage of having passports renewed, receiving consular cedulas (I.D. cards), and other services. These are very important since people with no U.S. status are not able to travel freely, even to return to their homelands, without some form of identification.
This year there will be Mobile Consulate services at St. Joseph’s Church, 64 Palisades Ave. in West New York, on February 21 and 22, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The following weekend the Mobile Consulate will be in Fairview.
