Costa Rican postal service to process ID renewal for foreigners

May 15, 2012

On June 1, Correos de Costa Rica, the company that manages the country’s postal service, will take over the renewal process for cédulas (Costa Rican IDs) for foreigners.

The new service follows an agreement signed Monday by the company, the Immigration Administration and the Digital Government Project.

Kattia Rodríguez, director of immigration, said the service initially will be available in 11 post offices, and gradually will be extended to a total of 60 offices by the end of the year. Correos de Costa Rica has a total of 117 branches across the country.

“This service aims to improve efficiency, but we also hope that providing people with better mechanisms will help to regularize their immigration status,” she said.

In addition to Correos de Costa Rica’s main office downtown, folks will be able to renew their IDs at branches in Zapote, Escazú, Tibás, Desamparados, Y Griega, Guadalupe, Pavas, Curridabat, Santa Ana, Grecia and Alajuela.

Rodríguez also confirmed that by early 2013, passport processing will be available through the agreement.
