Costa Rica reopens land borders for tourists

Michael Salas

As of April 5th, 2021, the Government of Costa Rica re-opened land borders for tourists and eliminated the mandatory quarantine on those who enter using this way. Previously, land entry was authorized exclusively for nationals and residents.

To enter, every tourist must complete the Pase Salud epidemiological form and must have medical insurance with a medical expenses coverage of $50,000 that includes COVID-19 disease and coverage of $2,000 for lodging expenses in case of quarantine by COVID-19, as well as a valid passport and exit ticket from the country.

Those who need an entry visa due to their nationality must wait until the consulates resume their operations in Visas.
