Visa to enter Costa Rica

Students from USA, Canada Europe, Japan and other countries receive a tourist visa for 90 days when they arrive in Costa Rica. For longer stays, students can spend 72 hours outside of the country and upon re-entry, they will be granted another 90 days as tourists. This makes for a nice long weekend trip to Nicaragua or Panamá that we will help you organize.

Visit the official website of the Costa Rican Immigration Office for detailed visa information.
