Up to 10am Monday, the INS reported some 339.000 vehicles had not yet had the Marchamo paid. The INS said it expects one half of them to be paid by close of business today.

According to INS deputy general manager, Franciso Soto, the majority of the non-payers are owners of light duty vehicles (vans and pickups) and motorcycles.

The INS offices will be closed at noon today. Payment at banks and financial institutions will depend on their working hours today. Payment can also be made online at  Make sure you print out a receipt of the payment.
