The Government of Belize has announced that the passport station and consulate in the city of Chicago at Evanston is scheduled for re-opening in August/September of 2018.
According to the release, the Government of Belize is grateful to the Belizean community in Chicago for their response to location and accessibility. The Governement underscores its gratitude for the community’s patience that they have shown during the period in which the services were interrupted. Its sole purpose of the closure was to improve the services provided to the community.
A few months ago, the Belizean Government finalized its internal processes to re-open the consulate, but had to wait until the State Department of the United States completed all their necessary procedures.
Debbie Schell and Yvonne Neal are thanked by the Government of Belize for their long years of service to Belize and the Belizean community there. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the government of Belize is in the process of building on the strengths of the past consulate and will strive to continue working with Ms. Schell in other areas of development.
