That service is by appointment only. Other services include passports and consular reports of birth abroad. They will not provide any visa-related information or services for non Americans trying to get into the United States. The services they do offer are available at new hours, so listen up:Monday through Thursday, 9:00AM to 2:00PM, except on both U.S. and Mexican holidays.To request an appointment for a document service, you will need to write with your name, the type of service you require, and your preferred appointment date.
    For further details on requirements for each of these services, check out their webpage: Passports: For consular reports of birth abroad: Notarial Services:
    For after-hours emergencies, like if you get your ass tossed in jail, call the duty officer at the U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana because nobody down here is going to pick up the phone once they’ve clocked out for the day. From Mexico you dial 001 (619) 692-2154. Hmmm....that’s a San Diego call.....well, that’s what the press release says, so we have to go with that. If you’re calling from jail, you might be wasting your dime anyway, as they can’t really get you out, they will just give you a list of lawyers to call. Maybe best to just keep that list in your shoe.

  7. Another way to notarize:   ways around the notarization process in Mexico by going to La Paz and using some of the notaries there and then having them verified at an apostille, but that is very expensive. Apparently they charge $100 per stamp at the notary, plus the additional apostille charges. I was told by a US lawyer who knows the process that it is a legal requirement that notaries in Mexico, amongst other countries, must allow notarizatiions followed by certification at an apostille (see Hague Conference).
