Travel Insurance for Costa Rica

Travel Insurance for Costa Rica

Costa Rica has started allowing tourists from various countries to visit them. As of November 1, 2020, Costa Rica's borders are open to all international travelers. They have also removed the requirement to present a negative PCR COVID-19 test after arrival in the country. Depending on your vaccination status, the type and level of travel insurance needed might differ. Read below to determine the requirements that apply, and the type of insurance needed for travel to Costa Rica.


For Vaccinated Travelers

As of August 1, 2021, Costa Rica allows entry to tourists fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines, as well as minors under 18 years of age, without travel insurance. Visitors from the United States are permitted to present their "COVID-19 vaccination record card" as proof of vaccination.

There are no additional travel insurance requirements for vaccinated travelers and they can buy what they need.


For Unvaccinated Travelers

Those over the age of 18 who cannot present proof of COVID-19 vaccination by the aforementioned vaccines still must purchase travel insurance that meets the following three requirements, as set by the Costa Rica government:

  • Valid for the entire duration of stay in Costa Rica.
  • Coverage in the amount of at least US $50,000 for medical expenses in the case of becoming ill with coronavirus (COVID-19) while in Costa Rica.
  • Minimum coverage of US $2,000 for quarantine lodging expenses required as a result of the COVID-19 illness.

The insurance company must provide a certificate issued in English or Spanish. Purchasing travel insurance from Costa Rican companies is very expensive for no apparent reason. Fortunately, there are several US based products that meet the Costa Rica travel insurance requirements.

There are several compliant travel insurance plans available for unvaccinated travelers depending on residence.
