Immigration status to be verifiable at click of a button

April 30, 2010

Businesses will soon be able to pay to learn the immigration status of people residing in Costa Rica, according to a press release from Racsa, the state-owned Internet provider.

After signing a contract with Racsa, for a fee of 100 colones per transaction, businesses will be able to check people´s immigration status based on first name, last name, birth date, nationality or cédula number.

“This new official consultation system allows distinct public entities and businesses, principally in the financial sector, to validate the information of their clients with the official information registered with the Immigration Administration,” the statement read.

Alberto Bermúdez, general manager of Racsa, said the new system, called Racsa-Interdata, will “give security to the work of many organizations in the country.”

Immigration director Mario Zamora said the system addresses the need of many state and private institutions to know whether foreigners are residing legally in Costa Rica.

For more information on the program, which is due to start Wednesday, contact Racsa´s sales department at 2287-0603 or e-mail them at infoempresa@racsa.co.cr.
