    Hi Paul, thanks again for the additional information. This will be one of the first things we do upon arrival in CR in January. I am consistent about changing the password at the beginning of each month so this is not a problem.............Ray

    Many, many thanks Paul and Julie, don't know what I would do without the kind assistance rendered by all on this forum. Hope someday I will have the knowledge to assist others. Paul, is this keychain fob plugged into the computer like a USB thumb drive or does it have a button you press that generates a number you input into the online banking system?..........Ray

    Thanks JulieH, is there a number on the card that I use to create the account in "Favorite Accounts" or how is this done? Do I need to go to a BN branch to get this card?............Ray

    OK folks, any assistance here would be greatly appreciated. We have $ and Colone accounts at BN. I have been able to transfer monies between the accounts online but am having a problem transferring monies from our BN account to a BCR account. It seems you have to set this BCR account up in your "Favorite Accounts" and when I try to set up the account to be credited in "Favorite Accounts" I get the following message. "We can not process your request. To avoid these problems you need to buy a token card or key in any authorized bank branches, it has a cost of 3.000.00 colones or 25 points can be redeemed online promotions in the 'Entertainment'. If you have an approved cell phone can also opt for the Mobile Token, this service is free. Www.bncr.fi.cr more details or call 2211-2000 for more information phone." Does this type of transaction require a "Token Card???"...............Ray

    Well, I just finished talking to the folks at Banco Internacional de Costa Rica SA and it appears that they are "not" a correspondent bank for Banco Nacional. they indicated Bank of America was. When I get time I will look into this further........Ray

    Wire Transfer from US

    OK for those that may have a similar experience with regard to wiring money from their US bank to Banco Nacional here is what I have dug up: 1). The "Patriot Act" requires all foreign banks that maintain a Correspondent bank in the US to declare such. Below is a link to Banco Nacional's declaration: http://www.bncr.fi.c...tion%202009.pdf 2). The declaration states that Banco Internacional de Costa Rica, SA (BICSA) in Miami is Banco Nacional's Correspondent bank in the US. http://www.bicsa.com/eng/default_c.asp 3). Click on New Regulations BICSA Costa Rica under BICSA news on the left side of their web page and there will be wiring instructions for your US bank. http://www.bicsa.com..._A_CLIENTES.pdf In my case it is the normal $15 charge for wiring between banks in the US. The contact information for BICSA is: MIAMI Banco Internacional de Costa Rica, SA 4000 Ponce de Leon, Suite 600 Coral Gables, Florida 33146 Phone: (305) 455-3100 / 455-3119 A.B.A.: 066011567 SWIFT: COSRUS3M No. Acct. the beneficiary :_____ Payee Name :_____ I called to find out if they had any associated charges but had to leave a voice mail. I do not think the Correspondent bank has any charges but I am sure Banco Nacional will. Hope this is helpful.............Ray

    Wire Transfer from US

    Hi John, thanks for this information. I had emailed BN for this their correspondent bank but have not heard back from them so I decided to query the forum. My credit union only charges $15 to wire to the correspondent bank, did your correspondent bank have any charges?..............Ray

    Wire Transfer from US

    I found out today that my Federal Credit Union in the US will not wire money directly to Banco Nacional but will only wire to their Corresponding bank in the US. Has anyone else experienced this situation? I checked the internet for Corresponding banks and found one in Florida but have not had a chance to call. Do these Corresponding banks charge additional fees to complete the wire? Any thoughts would be much appreciated.......................Ray
