The cost for non-members is $65 per person (including lunch) for the two day seminar, but if you join ARCR by the end of the Friday seminar, $25 will be deducted from your membership fee.
  5. Driver's license

    Actually Paul is correct in his information, which he obtained from me, Your Foreign License is only valid as long as your Tourist Visa is valid (UP to 90 days depending on your passport and the entry stamp)
  6. Residency Documents

    It is very possible that that particular consul did not receive the updated memo from Migracion, changing the validity of documents back to 6 months. Communication to the consulates is not always the strong suit of the government.
  7. Luv 2, Did it go through? I will email you to confirm, rcp
  8. Membership Renewal?

    Not a bad idea paul. I have thought of it, but maybe it should be implemented....
  9. Membership Renewal?

    Hi Andy, Just phone or email the office on both counts. We do send out a notice of membership with the magazine, but if we don't have the address you won't get it either. If our new software works well, by next year email notices will be able to be sent as well.
  10. Happy 40th birthday, Ryan!

  11. Once children have reached the legal age, yes they need to renew directly, of course if already a permanent resident this is easy.
  12. Forum

    Hi Laura, Probably too specific a topic for our forums. However there is a new site that will be created and you gave me a good idea, as this may fit there.
  13. Medical Insurance

    Normally the spouse is also a member, but the additional member is only $10 per year. The whole family (dependants) would be covered regardless....
  14. In theory $1000 income couold be valid, but at this stage the ONLY proof of income accepted must come from a financial institution, and often they won't write this letter, especially if the money is not with them.... however sometimes they will find methods that allow them to write it... (guarantee to the bank from the employer??...) There are only a few areasw affected by not having residency, the most hassle being leaving every 90 days. You theoretically cannot have CCSS medical (government health care) nor a Celular line, and so on. Somee of this can be worked around....
  15. History

    The ARCR started in 1984. This forum is but a few years old. We are still changing
