#LivinginCostaRica #vaccinemandate #unvaccinated ‘Costa Rica Breaking News Vaccine Mandate Oct. 23rd Let’s Confuse EVERYONE’ Costa Rica being Costa Rica decides to complicate things further by delaying it’s vaccine mandate until Jan. 8th 2022 and ‘roll out’ a transition period that will start December 1st.
December 1st, commercial establishments (restaurants, bars, casinos, department stores, Adventure Tour Co. etc) may decide to operate at 100% capacity, by accepting only vaccinated guests (tourists), or can decide to operate at 50% capacity with zero vaccination requirement to enter. Welcome to Costa Rica.
Starting January 8th 2022, just about all commercial establishments (restaurants, bars, casinos, department stores, Adventure Tour Co. etc) must require proof of vaccination.
As of now this is what Costa Rica requires for tourists wishing to enter-
For those who are vaccinated, you only need the ‘Health Pass’
1. Electronic epidemilogical Health Pass form can be found here- *Complete this form in the 48 hours before arriving in Costa Rica. **IF you are NOT vaccinated, you will have to buy your ‘Traveler Insurance’ first since the Health Pass asks for the policy number and such. This form produces a QR code that you will be asked to show upon arrival. **Be AWARE- Some airlines may ask for this at check-in.
2. Travel Insurance must meet these requirements and if you use an international policy you must present a letter stating: -Guaranteed coverage of medical expenses in the event of becoming ill with COVID-19 while in Costa Rica, for at least $50,000 USD. -Minimum coverage of $2,000 USD for lodging expenses issued as a result of the pandemic. -Validity of the policy throughout the planned stay in Costa Rica. **Costa Rica’s travel insurance policies tend to be on the pricier side, you can get cheaper, don’t use the CR insurance if you don’t have to.
Trawick International is an international policy that offers affordable prices that meet Costa Rica’s entry requirements. You can find them here- *Although I heard about these guys months ago, I have ZERO affiliation with them, so I can’t answer anything. Do your homework. If you want to make sure YOUR international policy meets Costa Rica’s requirements, go here and ask them- [email protected]
3. Proof (airline ticket OR BUS TICKET IN THIS CASE) that you are leaving Costa Rica within 90 days. NOTE: Tourist visas are typically good for 90 days but be sure your insurance policy matches the amount of days you want to stay in Costa Rica. *If you purchase a policy that only covers you for 10 days, you will not get stamped for 90 (they know this manipulation, don’t try it.)
