U.S. Embassy staffers to visit Pacific coast

Representatives from the consular section of the U.S. Embassy will be available to both Puntarenas and Liberia to answer questions related to passports and visas.

Types of questions the members will answer include how to apply and renew passports and how to receive documents for a new spouse or a baby born abroad.

However, the representatives will not conduct interviews necessary to qualify for non-immigrant visas. They will, on the other hand, accept documents related to immigrant visas.

“It’s not that they are going to issue visas at this time. They are just going to provide information,” said Evelyn Ardon, an embassy spokesperson.

Those U.S. citizens wishing to vote absentee in the 2012 elections can also receive forms and information packages about voting abroad.

The sessions will be Wednesday from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at Hotel Boyeros in Liberia and Thursday from 8 to 9:30 a.m. in Hotel Alamar in Puntarenas. No appointment is needed.

All services that require it must be paid in cash.
