COVID 19 Travel Requirements to Costa Rica
COVID-19 Travel Requirements for Costa Rica have been lifted.
Tourists are no longer required to purchase COVID-19 related medical insurance to enter Costa Rica or complete the health pass with the ministry of salud.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Costa Rica has implemented certain travel requirements for medical tourists. Depending on the severity of the pandemic, these travel requirements may change from time to time.
For the latest up-to-date COVID-19 travel requirements, please visit the Tico Times Website.
Currently, all travelers without a COVID-19 vaccination must purchase temporary medical travel insurance. The insurance must cover COVID-19 hospitalization and/or quarantine.
The insurance company we recommend to our patients is: https://www.trawickinternational.com/
Their medical travel insurance is inexpensive and it specifically covers all the requirements for Costa Rica.
Prior to the day of travel, all tourists are required to complete a COVID-19 health pass. This is a simple questionnaire used to attest to your COVID-19 status.
That’s it for COVID-19 requirements for travel into Costa Rica.
COVID 19 Testing Return Flight to USA
All airline passengers returning to the United States from Costa Rica are required to present a negative Covid-19 virus test at the airport. The test must be completed the day of the flight, or the day prior to the flight departure, and no sooner.
There are many labs throughout Costa Rica authorized to perform the test. At our clinic, we use Lab Echandi. We can help you set up your test before your departure with Lab Echandi at our clinic or at one of their lab centers.
Hotels for Medical Travel to our Clinic
Car Rental and Medical Travel to Costa Rica
The car rental company we refer our patients to is Adobe. In our opinion, Adobe is one of the better car rental agencies in Costa Rica. They offer flat rental rates with no surprises for additional fees.
There are more commonly recognized companies like Avis, Budget, and Hertz, but most of these agencies offer low upfront rates, and then surprise renters with last-minute insurance fees when picking up the car at the rental counter. Always request a comprehensive quote beforehand if you are using one of these other agencies!
This is precisely why we recommend Adobe. Adobe always quotes customers the flat rate with insurance included, so there are no surprises when you arrive at the agency.
Age Metrics Medical has also teamed up with Adobe. Adobe offers our patients a discounted rate. They also require a lower deposit amount which is an added bonus. For more information on Adobe Car Rental Costa Rica, see their website.
Don’t forget to ask them for the Age Metrics Medical Discount!
