Terrestrial traffic often takes up to 3 days to cross the Nicaragua – Costa Rica border.  This increases substantially the cost of products that need to enter or leave Costa Rica.

The customs department is taking steps to remove this delay.

Customs Procedures in Peñas Blancas Prohibited

In order to speed things up at Costa Rica’s main border, from November procedures must be made from companies or other customs offices.

In April, an article in nacion.com noted that, at the Peñas Blancas office, “truckers have been taking up to two days to complete the formalities and reviews and be allowed to pass over to the Nicaraguan side.”

Now, the Directorate General of Customs in Costa Rica has decreed that “From November carriers passing through the customs at Peñas Blancas, on the border with Nicaragua, will complete the steps from their company offices or other customs offices located in various parts the country, because in the booths at the border it is no longer allowed. ”

The Director General of Customs, Gerardo Bolaños, said the aim of the measure is “to turn this office into a thoroughfare, not a place of paperwork. The option of carrying out the paperwork elsewhere has always existed, but it has never been an enforced measure, and is not always done; in addition, the current infrastructure has made this exit post a bottleneck, meaning that time gained in doing the processing [in advance]was lost in when it came to driving through. ”

 

Prohíben trámites en Aduana de Peñas Blancas

Para acelerar el paso por el principal paso fronterizo de Costa Rica, a partir de noviembre los trámites se deberán realizar desde las empresas o en otras sedes aduanales.

En abril, un artículo en nacion.com señalaba que, en la Aduana de Peñas Blancas, “los camioneros se tardan hasta dos días en realizar los trámites y revisiones y quedar autorizados para pasar al lado nicaraguense.”

Ahora, la Dirección General de Aduanas de Costa Rica decretó que “A partir de noviembre los transportistas que pasen por la aduana de Peñas Blancas, en la frontera con Nicaragua, deberán realizar los trámites desde su empresa o en otras sedes aduanales ubicadas en varias partes del país, pues en las casetillas de paso ya no será permitido.”

El Director General de Aduanas, Gerardo Bolaños, explicó que el objetivo de la medida es “convertir esta aduana en un lugar de paso y no de trámites. La opción de hacer la papelería en otros lugares de manera previa existe desde hace tiempo, pero al no ser una medida obligada, no siempre se hace; además, la infraestructura actual convertía la salida en un embudo, por lo que el tiempo ganado en trámites se perdía igual al pasar.”
