Visa Overstay Fine, Where to Pay

Posted on March 2, 2017 at 6:41pm 1 Comment

I know you can probably pay at Chiriqui Mall, but can you pay at Rio Sereno, Paso Canoas, and the airports?

And no I am not overstayed, this for for someone else.

Lee Zeltzer initially posted this. Eric is the anti corruption contact for the Police Nacional for this area. His cel is 6520 7083. He is the person to call for any transito and other irregularities. If you stick this number on your driver license it would help keep things honest. Also if you are unfortunate to get towed, demand a ticket. You shouldn't be towed without a recorded infraction.

Any news on when the streets will be paved and in what order?

Also, I heard that septic tanks that qualify will be hooked up free of charge. Any news on that?

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(frankkwabena@hotmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr Frank.
