Passport Renewal Empty Passport Renewal

Post by Playaboy Wed May 01, 2013 10:05 am

I will be going to LCS next week to meet with the consulate officials and renew a passport. We have filled out the forms, have photos and the expiring passport.

How does Uncle Sam like to be paid? Cash, credit card, check?

You must pay with a special bank check. The only place I know of that issues them locally is CI Banco, which is in the Centro Laguna Mall across from Wings Army.

Damn. I knew you were going to ask that. I can't remember. It's not what you'd expect.....not the Department of Sate or even the US Treasury, it's something weird. They know at the bank, just tell them it's for a US passport. Maybe give yourself a few days leaway, that way if somebody new is working there, or there's any doubt, you'll have some time to call the Consulate and ask, etc.

As predicted, looks like Pedro "Classic" has returned. Incomprehensible rubbish, punctuated with insults. Feeble slapshots from an addled brain!

Wrong, again. The US State Department website would lead you to believe the check should be made payable to the Department of State. That is incorrect. Because this renewal application is going through the US Consulate in Guadalajara, the check needs to be made out differently.

I want to say it was something like "US Transfer Agent" or something weird like that. Again, they know at CI Banco.

I just checked on an American forum and it seems that an "IOU" is acceptable.

I've been SOB for 5 years and saw some bills the other day. Leave them alone for a few days and they will screw up anything. Worst looking money in the world now.

I now understand why Canadians are so special! What other country could arrange to have their new $5 bill announced from the International Space Station:

Yes some folks have had their photos refused when getting them from Farmacia Guadalajara. Therefore some or many of the facilitators recommend other locations for getting their photos.

That's pretty much history, fortunately. Just don't leave them in a FarmGuad envelope.

And
4 Canadian banks on Top 10 list of world's strongest

Royal, Scotiabank, CIBC and TD score high on Bloomberg ranking, No other country dominated the list as did Canada:

The nation of 34.7 million people has only eight publicly traded banks, two of which are regional lenders. Only three U.S. banks -- JPMorgan Chase (JPM) (No. 13), PNC Financial Services Group Inc. (PNC) (No. 17) and BB&T Corp. (BBT) (No. 20) -- made the top 20. Four European banks were included: two from Sweden and one each from the U.K. and Switzerland.
