I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

INTERPOL System now in service at Costa Ricas borders • Migración pone en práctica consulta de INTERPOL en puestos fronterizos

Since late April 2013, the Directorate General of Immigration implemented at all border posts, people query the system of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol). Such consultation is achieved through the Electronic System Migratory Movement (Simmel) Migration will be linked directly with the database of Interpol in France.

The immigration officer using a query manually or electronically through   SIMMEL system,   you can access the query window and then select the search criteria and observe   all possible matches that exist in the system with the data of the person who are entering.

This consultation will allow the immigration officer see the full name, passport number and photograph of the person appearing in the query. All information will be available to officers is provided directly by the Interpol office in France.

In addition, this query can detect persons attempting to enter the country with a passport that was stolen anywhere in the world. The system will give sufficient information to the immigration inspector to it decides whether or not the person should be arrested.

The query system is agile and fast, and is performed in real time, ie at the time that the immigration officer has consulted the Interpol office in France can see that our country is being consulted the person who proposed system. In case the person trying to enter our country the authorities seek immediate efforts are made to proceed with the arrest.

This access also allows immigration officials to access information from the Interpol missing persons extremely important tool in the case of trafficking.

Desde finales del mes de abril anterior, la Dirección General de Migración y Extranjería puso en práctica en todos sus puestos fronterizos, la consulta de personas al sistema de la Organización Internacional de Policía Criminal   (Interpol). Dicha consulta se logra gracias a que el Sistema de Movimiento Migratorio Electrónico (SIMMEL) de Migración estará enlazado directamente con la base de datos de la Interpol en Francia.

El oficial de Migración mediante una consulta manual o electrónica por medio  del sistema de SIMMEL, podrá acceder a la ventana de consultas y de ahí seleccionar los criterios de búsqueda y observar todas las posibles coincidencias que existan en el sistema con los datos de la persona que está ingresando.

Esta consulta permitirá al oficial de Migración ver el nombre, apellido, número de pasaporte, así como la fotografía de la persona que aparece en la consulta. Toda la información que estará a disposición de los oficiales es suministrada directamente por la oficina de Interpol en Francia.

Además,  esta consulta permite detectar a aquellas personas que intenten ingresar al país con algún pasaporte que fue robado en cualquier parte del mundo. El sistema le dará la información suficiente al inspector migratorio para que este decida si  la persona debe o no ser detenida.

La consulta al sistema es de forma ágil y rápida, además que se realiza en tiempo real, es decir que en el momento que el oficial de Migración realice la consulta, la oficina de Interpol en Francia puede ver que en nuestro país se está consultando a la persona que el sistema propone. En caso que la persona que intenta ingresar a nuestro país sea la que las autoridades buscan, inmediatamente se realizan las gestiones para que se proceda con la detención.

Este acceso también permite a los funcionarios de Migración tener acceso a la información de la Interpol sobre personas desaparecidas, herramienta sumamente importante en el caso de trata de personas.
