All people entering Costa Rica must complete the digital epidemiological form. This is known as the “Health Pass” or “Pase de Salud.”
Travelers NO LONGER NEED to obtain a negative PCR-RT coronavirus test. A CORONA VIRUS TEST IS NO LONGER A REQUIREMENT FOR ENTRY AS OF OCTOBER 26th.
Travelers must purchase travel insurance that covers accommodation in case of quarantine and medical expenses due to COVID-19. This policy can be international or purchased from Costa Rican insurers. Call us for details and up-to-date information; toll-free: 1-866-804-1793.
There are three companies that sell pre-approved travel insurance plans: The National Insurance Institute (INS), Sagicor, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. Tourists opting for a foreign policy must demonstrate proof (in English or Spanish) that their policy:
- Is valid throughout the planned visit to Costa Rica.
- Covers medical expenses in cases of COVID-19 in Costa Rica, for at least $50,000 (fifty thousand United States dollars).
- Includes a minimum coverage of $2,000 for expenses of extended lodging due to the pandemic.
At this time, there are no exceptions to the insurance requirement for foreigners entering Costa Rica on a tourist visa.
