U.S. Consular Agent, Samantha Mason, will present another in her series of informational seminars in Puerto Aventuras on February 7, 2012. Held annually, these gatherings have become a valuable resource for foreigners who have relocated to the Riviera Maya, either full or part-time.

The annual meeting will be held in the PA Colonos Meeting Room. Doors will open at 9:00 o'clock with a half an hour for meet and greet before the presentation begins at 9:30. Topics to be discussed will include a detailed explanation of the most recent changes made to the laws regulating U.S. plated cars in Mexico, including the 2012 reintroduction of an annual import sticker.

Those who own foreign plated cars, or are considering bringing one into Mexico, are encouraged to attend this meeting. Other topics on the agenda include a detailed explanation of services offered by the U.S. Consulate Office in Playa del Carmen, the recommended protocol to use when stopped by police, how and where to pay your traffic ticket and what to do if you become the victim of a crime. The meeting is open to all interested parties.
