The Matrícula Consular (Consular Identification Card) is an identification card issued by a Foreign Country, through their consulate offices in the United States. It is given to their “Nationals” residing outside of their home country and it is also known as the CID card. The purpose of the card is to demonstrate that the bearer is a “Foreign National” living abroad. The Matricula Consular includes a Foreign Government’s (such as Mexico) issued ID number and bears a photograph and current address of the “Foreign National” living in the United States.
Foreign ID’s are also acceptable to verify identity. We work with companies who will take a Foreign Passport, Foreign Driver’s License or Identification Cards as proof. These IDs must have a photo, a valid date and not be expired.
