Is this true re: permanent residency

Post Posted: Wed Feb 15, 2006 12:13 am

if a child is born in CR, that the parents automatically gain permanent residency? does this also apply to any siblings? curious if this is the case or not as it might make a difference as to when child #3 comes along Razz

All first level blood relatives of a Costa Rican can get legal residency. That does mean spouses, unmarried brothers & sisters, and parents.

This is maybe not the easiest way (I have two girls!) to get residency, but for the huddled, desperate, hungry masses it works well.

it is kinda fun to 'try' to get residency this way tho Razz

in all seriousness we know we will be having another child and this fact might adjust the timetable a bit. someone else mentioned that we'd have to wait for the birth certificate (2-3 months), then apply for residency.

we're not huddle & desperate - just preternaturally fertile.

Residency through the birth of a child
It sure is the most fun way to obtain residency.
The birth of a child will qualify you to obtain permanent residency in Costa Rica, you will still need to obtain the necessary documents and have them stamped at the consulate nearest you.
Of course this will guarantee approval, the birth certificate muist be registered in order to obtain the birth certificate, this process does take at least 2 or 3 months.
