“Thank you so much for all your efforts and time. I would like to express my gratitude for getting my residency so smoothly. Without your ability to speed up the progress I would not have been able to move to Costa Rica.”

Annabel

“CR Immigration Experts is exceptionally professional and efficient. They are always very cordial in answering any questions in a timely manner. They go the extra mile in providing an excellent service. I have already recommended CRIE to others friends, who already signed up for their services and they are also very happy.”

Charles

“Thank you so much. You and your staff have been truly outstanding to work with. I cannot imagine anyone trying to do this on their own without the help of a professional to guide them through the bureaucratic maze of the process. Please pass along my sincere thanks to your entire staff.”

My experience with Johanna Alvarez and your firm is one that I will cherish forever. The first contact with Johanna was around 2014, with reconnect in 2017. My husband is Costa Rican and I am from the U.S. Our plans to move to Costa Rica were postponed until finally we were able to conclude the plans to really make the journey in 2020 and Johanna was once more contacted. This background is to tell the way that Johanna, through all of the years, was always there to advise and guide; never being too busy to respond. Covid came and again Johanna was available at every step of our process to navigate the virus effects on the immigration process. We were finally able to come to Costa Rica in December 2020, meet with Johanna and start my residency application. She has walked every step of this process with us and my application was approved in May. Your firm as represented by Johanna has been amazing and I will always be grateful that she was the person we chose for this process. Also, I am looking forward to working with her for the renewal and citizenship.

I wanted to thank the staff at CR Immigration Experts and especially Johanna. Costa Rica is an enchanting country and my family, my friends and I have visited many times. As my retirement approaches I knew that I wanted an adventure and to live in another country. I needed a country that has a different culture from the United States but is not so different that I would feel lost. Costa Rica is perfect for me. The country is fascinating and beautiful. I am so excited to live and learn in Costa Rica during this next chapter of my life. I started the process of applying for residency as a “pensionado” before the onset of COVID in January 2020. I had read so much about the residency process. I knew that I did not have the language capacity or the time to manage this process by myself. There are so many details that Johanna and her team handled with ease. When appointments were made Johanna or one of the other staff were always with me. I was supported throughout the process. Literally as soon as the country reopened their borders I had an appointment to finalize the process. On November 27, 2020 I completed the process and now I am an official resident. I look forward to returning to Costa Rica after the holidays to pick up my DIMEX (resident card) at the post office in the town where I have a home. Retirement is at the end of the summer and I look forward to spending the next holiday season in my new home in Costa Rica. I cannot recommend CRIE enough. They are professional, confident and work the system with ease. Special thanks to Johanna and her team. I look forward to learning a new culture and improving my Spanish skills.

"Hello Johanna, I wanted to thank you for your incredible service in obtaining my cedula approval in such a timely matter! Compared to my first experience of paying $30,000.00 for my wife and I and our 2 children in 1994, and it took a year and a half. You made this a painless and wonderful experience. Thank you for everything! So very much appreciated."

"Thank you, Johanna, for all your help in the long and complicated process of getting our first-time residency. We were very impressed by the fact, that however busy you were, you were always there to help us with our questions and problems.  We will certainly contact you again when it is time to renew."

Julie

“This was my first experience using an immigration service and I was extremely satisfied with how things turned out. If I had questions, answers from CRIE were only an email away, and with very quick responses. Everything went smoothly.”

Daniel and Peggy

“The first immigration company we used was hopeless, and then I found Johanna and she managed to sort out all the mistakes the first company made and also get us our residency. Thanks…”
