The Mexican Foreign Ministry announces improvements and in 90 minutes "vanish" 16,000 consular appointments for Cubans

After being denounced for the sale of consular appointments, the Mexican Foreign Ministry announced this Saturday the introduction of “various improvements” in your system to obtain visas at its consulate in Havana. The objective, he indicated to himself, is to “expand” the “availability, make the assignment transparent and eliminate intermediaries or managers.”

An encouraging message for Cubans who were informed that starting at 2:00 pm this Saturday “16,000 appointments would be enabled to carry out consular procedures before the Mexican embassy in Cuba for the period between May and December 2022” .

As expected, thousands of people accessed the platform after that time, but to start the process, says a user, “I had to re-register for the service because, despite having created a user a while ago , this new stage of consular appointments for Mexico requires re-registration”.

“After many setbacks, around 3:30 pm I was able to enter but there was nothing left and I received this message by email: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs regrets to inform you that for the moment all the appointments for the consular section have been exhausted of the Mexican embassy in Cuba.

An hour and a half in front of the computer and 16,000 appointments were delivered, “it’s hard to believe,” the annoyed user states that in the message received by the Mexican Foreign Ministry as a consolation, she indicated that “her data had been registered and at the moment in which appointments are enabled, you will be notified by this only means to continue with the appointment assignment process”.

The situation was widely commented on social networks, where Internet users showed their skepticism at the short time in which the capacities were exhausted. Problems with the Internet connection on the Island also bothered Internet users who reported a drop in browsing speed.

Now, a waiting compass opens again. The improvements that the agency touted failed. It is of little use to know that the Foreign Ministry is working to improve the availability of its services at the Mexican embassy in Cuba and that it will assign additional staff, and extend the opening hours to the public, if there are no appointments.

This situation occurs almost a month after the Mexican Foreign Ministry announced the “ alleged dating sale to carry out consular procedures” at its embassy in Cuba. Until now, the progress of the investigation has not been made public.

The Mexican government affirms that the citacuba.sre.gob.mx site has “multiple locks and security measures that prevent appointments from being transferred to people other than those whose data was originally recorded.”

Although that security has not prevented them from being evidenced selling quotes. “For 6,000 dollars a person gets you the sure yes,” says Jorge Luis. “A friend is raising the money to do it and thus travel to Mexico and from there to the border with the United States.”

14ymedio exhibited to a Scammer offering visas and entry into the US for $6,000. The complainants pointed to the profile of Andrés Ramiro Naranjo Pardo. The subject asked for 50% of the money for the paperwork and the second part upon delivery of the appointment, which never arrived.
