  1. Document Legalization (ARCR El Residente 2012 01) For those who are going to start their residency, or need to complete other legal processes, legalization of foreign documents has now become simpler. As of December 14th, 2011, documents that originate from participating countries can now be Apostilled for use in Costa Rica. The benefit is that these documents no longer need to pass through the Costa Rican Consulate nor Relaciones Exteriores in Costa Rica. Costa Rica signed to adhere to the Hague Convention on Apostilles last March and was awaiting approval by the other member countries, which has now been completed. This process will not only save time and inconvenience, but will also save the $40 fee that was charged by the consul in order to authenticate each document. The previous method of obtaining a Certificate of Authority, then the consular authentication, will still have to be done in those countries not party to the Hague Convention.
