The institution explained that the measure will apply between this Monday, July 13 and next Friday, July 17 for all offices (central and regional) in the country.

“The decision to suspend this service, one that requires a physical presence of users in our facilities, has the sole purpose of controlling and reducing the exponential increase in the spread of the coronavirus,” said Edwin Herrera, executive director of Cosevi.

Users can call 2522-0815 or the email platform-servicesj@csv.go.cr for inquiries.

This situation occurs at times when the Cosevi is overwhelmed by the number of plates seized.
