    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The government of Costa Rica reported today that they have learned of 32 Costa Ricans in good health in the Philippines, but they have no official record of how many more might reside in the country hit hard by Typhoon Haiyan.

    “Costa Ricans, including several family groups and workers of multinational firms located in the Philippines, were located through efforts by the honorary consul in Manila, Fausto Preysler de la Riva and the Embassy of Costa Rica in Singapore,” said the Costa Rican Foreign Ministry in a statement.

    The Foreign Ministry said that there has been difficulty in establishing precisely how many Costa Ricans are residing in the Philippines because these people do not usually register at the consulates.

    “The only time we know they are here is when they need to translate a document, such as marriage certificates, birth or driver’s license. Neither is it disclosed when they leave the country. So I do not really know how many Costa Ricans are now in the Philippines,” said the consul. (EFE)
