ReevesTribe posted a topic in Living or Retiring in Costa Ricahttp://www.insidecos...ica11120102.htm I'm not sure what to make of this info. First of all, those of us with legal residency who have paid for cedulas will have to incur the cost of an additional ID for banking purposes ($123 for first issue, then $98 for renewals that I hope aren't annual!). But the article states outright that this new ID card will hold the immigration status of the cardholder within the magnetic strip. So, where will the perpetual tourist fall in this? Obviously they'll need the card to do banking. Is this another step towards regulating perpetual tourists? Food for thought, eh??? Jessica
