Consulates — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Most countries with a lot of visitors to México maintain an embassy in México City, and some, depending on depth of ties between countries and citizens' needs, maintain consular offices outside the capital.
Common services provided are replacement of lost or stolen passports, acting as a point of contact for citizens arrested abroad, financial assistance if destitute, medical assistance during emergencies, citizens registering their presence in México in case of emergency, and assistance during natural disasters or other crises. If arrested the first thing you should do is call your embassy or consulate.
Services vary by country. To get a better idea of the services your country provides its citizens, check its website listed below. Most are useful and worth consulting. If a country's embassy is not listed, check the México City Airport website, www.aicm.com.mx, it has a complete list of all embassies in the city.
Travelers considering a visit to one of México's neighbors — United States, Guatemala, Belize, or Cuba — should consult with the country's embassy or consulate or check its website for visa requirements.
If your home country does not have a consulate in Oaxaca check Embassies and Consulates in México for the closest one.
