Cédula demand causes longer Registro work day

The Registro Civil will be working an extra hour each workday during January to accommodate the requests for cédulas by Costa Rican citizens.

The Registro, an agency of the Tribunal Supremo de Elecciones, said in a press release that January is the month with the biggest demand, in part because Costa Ricans lose their cédulas through theft or accidents during the holiday period.

The plastic card contains security devices and is obligatory for many procedures like bank visits.
