There is currently no new requirement to be vaccinated prior to entering Costa Rica and visitors who choose not to get the shot may still purchase Covid health and quarantine insurance for immigration purposes.
Proof of Vaccination
Costa Ricans currently obtain a certificate of vaccination automatically or by using this Ministry of Health link. Starting the first of November this certificate will be updated to a secure QR code using a validation app borrowed from Europe.
