  1. On April 3rd my husband and I went to BCR in San Ramon for our residency renewal appointment. They gave us copies of our renewal application which showed it should arrive at our post office on May 3rd. We had semana santa included in those dates so we figured that is why we had to wait 4 weeks to receive the new cedulas. As of Wednesday, May 17th we have still not received our cedulas. A friend called the 800-9000-2000 number that is on our renewal form and we believe this is the main post office in San Jose. They said Migracion was very busy and to check in 1 to 2 weeks. Has anyone else had problems receiving their renewal cedula in the last 6 to 8 weeks? Does anyone have another phone number or a website to check renewals? Do we at some point need to go back to BCR? Thanks for any help. Joy
  2. We went back to BCR after waiting 8 weeks from our renewal application date for our cedulas. It was also 4 weeks passed the date we were to receive them. We were told that Migracion was over loaded with paperwork and that we would receive them around June 3, 2017. They gave us a website for the post office where we could enter our Number de Guia and could follow the tracking. This is only after it is entered into the post office system. The Number de Guia is a different number than the one you will use in the above website for migracion. Here is the post office link. https://www.correos.go.cr/rastreo/consulta_envios/rastreo.aspx Remember your number will only show up after it has been entered into the post office system. As of today, our numbers are still not entered into the post office system. We tried the above website for migracion and it only showed what had been processed 2 years ago.
  3. Sorry for the late post. We found out the 900 number only works with Kolbi service. I think it costs about 400 colones a minute. We had purchased a sim card (1000 colones) and additional 5,000 colones. When I called the message is in spanish. I stayed on the line and when they answered I said I needed an English speaking person. They put me on hold and then told me that person was at lunch and that they would call me back in one hour. I waited 2 hours and then called back and went through the same process. The English speaking person was very nice but did ask a lot of questions. I ended up running out of minutes. When my phone told me I had 1 minute left, I told the person I was speaking with and he said he could call me back. We hung up and he immediately called me back to finish up the information. The appointment I received was for 2 weeks later and he told me everything that I had to take with us. The appointment at BCR was very simple. On April 3rd we had a 9:10 appointment and they took us immediately. They even gave us a copy of our renewal forms and the date to check at the post office which was 4 weeks later. If you saw my other post, we have still not received our cedulas but we're going to wait another week or two before we recheck with BCR.
  4. Thanks eleanorcr. That was sort of our thinking. We may give it another week and then go back to BCR. Thanks again, always enjoy your posts and comments.

  6. I did use both to qualify originally. I would like to know how current does the apostilled pension letter need to be? Can it be dated within a 6 month before renewal?
  7. After research on the Migracion website I found out the problem with the phone. The 1311 only works with Kolbi or a fixed ICE and we have Movistar. So with that mystery solved I still would like to see if anyone has an answer to my above question. Thanks.
  8. Wow, I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have tried 1311 and the call ends in a couple of seconds. I have tried 2 different days for several times. I have also called Migracion in San Jose and while the auto message is playing I dialed 1311. It connected to the extension with an auto message and then a hang up. I also stayed on the Migracion phone number until it disconnected me with a "hasta luego". I have also tried both ways on Skype. Any suggestions? If not, maybe someone knows the answer to this: I will have the SS letter from the Embassy but I am short a few dollars to make it to $1,000. To make up the difference I have a letter from a Pension Plan stating I receive $60.00 a month for life. How far out can the dates be on the apostilled $60 Pension Plan letter. Is it 6 months like when we first applied?
  9. I am trying to call Migracion at the 1311 call center number. The call will not go through. Are there additional numbers I need to dial?
  10. When we renew at Migracion in San Jose I know to take a new SS letter that we will request from the Embassy on line. I also have a form stating that I will receive $60.00 for life from a pension ( so I could reach the $1,000 requirement). Can I use that form or do I have to get a new one from United States and have it apostilled in the states. Which would also probably have to be translated into Spanish. I thought about trying to renew with only the SS letter and see what happens. If that doesn't work could we use my husband's SS letter (showing the $1,000) requirement) that he is now receiving even though we both became residents with my SS?
  11. Thanks for info. I'm thinking of renewing at the beginning of 3 months. We always have our Caja payment current so will that receipt be fine or do we have to "renew" Caja before the Carnet. Also,at Migracion when we first got our Cedulas the lady told us we didn't need an appointment to renew to just come back with SS letter. Does that sound correct or should I make an appointment?
  12. Question for anyone who renewed at the Migracion in San Jose. Can we pay the fee at Migracion when we renew or do we need to make the payment to BCR? Can we renew our cedulas before we renew our carnets at CAJA?
