Requirements for tourists entering Costa Rica.

Tourists wishing to enter Costa Rica must comply with these requirements: 

  • Complete the online “Health Pass” epidemiological form: https://salud.go.cr. 
  • Show proof of a negative PCR test for the coronavirus. The sample for the test must have been taken no more than 72 hours before departure. The specific type of test required is a PCR-RT test. Other tests like the rapid test will not be accepted.
  • Obtain travel insurance. This can be either a pre-approved Costa Rican policy from INS or Sagicor, or an international policy that covers COVID-19 medical expenses of at least $50,000 and $2,000 for lodging. 
  • Tourists must have remained in an authorized country for at least 14 days before travel.
  • Until November 1, U.S. residents must show a driver’s license or State ID indicating they live in an authorized state. As of November 1, this will no longer be necessary, as all U.S. states will be authorized.
