I notice that the American Consulate does not send out reps to chapala/Ajijic any more to assist Americans with their passport renewal. How does one go about that these days. Thank you.

10 seconds to do what? Get your passport renewed? I'm sure that must be a new record of some kind!!

As a Canadian, I can do it all on line and send the application for renewal with photos etc. and the old passport to the Canadian Embassy in Mexico City along with a return courier envelope for them to send it back. I pay with my Visa card.
I have read the rules for the American Passport renewal and having to show up in person is antiquated beyond belief.
You have my sympathies.

Routine passport, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, and notarial services are cancelled as of March 18. Check here https://mx.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/passport-services/ for appointment availability at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City or at any of our nine consulates or nine consular agencies throughout Mexico. U.S. citizens in need of 24/7 emergency assistance should call 81-4160-5512 (from Mexico) or +1 (844) 528-6611 (from the United States). Please visit https://mx.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information/ to learn about the latest COVID-19 developments in Mexico along with precautions to take to protect your health and safety.

Emergency passport services are being offered by appointment only. Please do not walk in to the Consulate. Please email ACSGDL@state.gov if you need emergency services in Guadalajara.

I talked to Spencer (American lawyer here in Chapala) and he mentioned that the government passport office in the States is closed due to Corona. The American consulate in Guad, however, has been issuing temporary passports, good for 12 months, but is temporarily out of them. My passport doesn'nt expire until the 24th of Sept. and he told me to return to his office the middle of Aug. when the temps will probably be available again.

Thank you much to those of you who posted possible solutions for my plight!
