  1. I plan on leaving my car at the GDL airport for five days and was wondering if anyone out there knows what the recent per day costs are for on site parking. I do not want to use off site parking so if you have any recent experience with this I would appreciate the information. Thanks
  2. You are right. The one they gave me says Passport application and the one I printed says passport renewal application! Thanks
  3. Tiny, Thanks for the reply. Do you know how much the FedEx fee is ?
  4. Spencer, do you do passports(i.e.) take people to the consulate ?
  5. Hi Tiny, Tried to send you a pm but it wouldn't let me. I just want to verify that I can use my credit card at the Consulate for my passport renewal. Also, I don't understand about the FedEx portion of your message. I did not plan to use FedEx just have the passport sent to my mailing address in the US. Can you clarify ?
  6. I was finally able to print DS-82. I will go to the consulate so I can use my credit card. Thanks for your help!
  7. This message is to those of you that have renewed your U.S. passport at LCS. I went there the other day to get the forms to renew both mine and my wife's U.S. passports and they gave me form DS-11 which has the golden outlines on the front of the form. Later on I read that this form is for those people for whom this is a first time adult renewal or is a child and that I should use form DS-82. Has anyone had previous experience with passport renewal at LCS and did you use the form with the golden outlines on the front of the form. Will the consulate accept this even though I have had previous renewals ? Thanks
  8. Hi Oregontochapala, I appreciate your input and I do agree with you. After reviewing all of the costs and time involved with doing it here we have decided to go to Guadalajara. We have a person that will schedule an appointment for us and take us there. I do have a few questions I hope you can answer however. Do we need to bring our own photographs or do they take them at the consulate ? What else do I need to bring ? Proof of residence ? Mexican visa ? Anything you can think of!! Thanks
  9. If you have recently renewed your US passport I would appreciate any answers to these questions ! My wife and I will need to renew our passports and we plan on going to the American Legion on March 13th. I have all of the necessary paperwork but have a couple of questions I cannot get answers for. First: I will need to call and get the exchange rate the Friday prior to Wednesday the 13th but don't know what number to call. Can you give me that number or tell me where to find it ? Second: The application asks for my mailing address on page one. I use IShop so that address is in Texas but I live here permanently. On the second page it asks for permanent address if different from mailing address. I am assuming I would use Laredo Texas for mailing and Ajijic for permanent. Is this correct ? Lastly: Where can I get proper photographs around Ajijic which is where I live. They will not accept Farmacia Guadalajara photos. Thanks in advance for your help !
  10. Thanks for the info. Am I to understand that even though my plate ends in 2 I won't need a sticker until next year ? Also, I have tried google maps for directions there but they only show being by the microlibrimento. Can you give directions from Guad Chap carretera. I really appreciate this!!
  11. Hi Natasha, Thanks for the reply. That would explain why those that are authorized to do the testing do not know why they have no holograms yet !
