U.S. Embassy Opens New Consular Section
Visitors to the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in San José can look forward to a speedier visit, thanks to a recently completed overhaul of the facility.
The Consular Section now features more client windows and a computerized customer-attention system that lets U.S. citizens seeking passports or other services, and others seeking visas to the United States, know when their turn is coming.
The embassy previously announced that once the renovations were complete, current wait times for visa appointments would be reduced significantly or even eliminated.
