  • Mexican Consular Office ID Policy

    A Matricula Consular ID card (also known as Matricula Consular de Alta Seguridad (MCAS), or as a Certificate of Consular Registration) is a document that is issued in the Mexican Consulate to Mexican foreign nationals that reside in the U.S.

    The memo states that the MCAS is sufficient to identify the individual and as proof of nationality, but is not sufficient to verify an immigrant’s legal immigration status in the U.S. or eligibility for benefits under the Food Stamp Program.
