U.S. citizens living in Costa Rica take note, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is holding a Webinar on Reporting Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts, on June 4, 2014.

The U.S. Embassy San José strongly recommend that U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Costa Rica enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. If you don’t have Internet access, enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
The U.S. Embassy in San Jose is located in Pavas, on the main road to Pavas from La Sabana, about 2 kilometres from the national stadium. The embassy phone number is 2519 2000 (from the U.S.: 011-506-2519-2000). Their email and additional contact information visit http://costarica.usembassy.gov/contact.html
