Given the importance of preventing and avoiding the spread of the coronavirus caused by the COVID-19 disease that has been declared an international pandemic, the Costa Rica
Tourism Board (the ICT) informs its tourism partners that the Government of the Republic has ordered that:
Only Costa Ricans and residents may enter the country for 25 days.
The measure applies from March 18, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. through April 12 at 11:59 p.m. and applies to ports of entry by air, sea and land.
Upon entering the country, Costa Rican citizens and residents will receive a health order and will have to stay in their homes for 14 days in compliance with preventive and compulsory isolation.
International tourists currently in national territory will be able to leave the country in an orderly manner and must coordinate with the respective airlines or travel agencies.
This is a health decision to safeguard the right to life and health of individuals, a fundamental right that the State must protect.
