U.S. Embassy plans Tamarindo outreach

U.S. Embassy consular staffers will be visiting Tamarindo Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas.

They will be renewing passports and providing notary services. They also will accept applications for replacement Social Security cards and will have informational material on federal benefits for veterans, dependents, and survivors, they said.

The staff is seeking reservations at ACSSanJose@state.gov.

Curiously, the announcement said that embassy staffers cannot accept U.S. dollars but must be paid in colons. The price for a passport is 59,900  colons and notary service is 27,200 colons per acknowledgement.
