Costa Rica Required Travel Insurance

The government of Costa Rica has implemented the following requirements for visitors abroad to comply with before entering the country:

• Fill out the electronic epidemiological health pass form before departure

• For international insurance policies, tourists must request a certification from their insurance company, issued in English or Spanish, verifying at least the following three conditions:

1) Effectiveness of the policy during the visit to Costa Rica

2) Coverage for Medical expenses in the event of becoming ill with the pandemic COVID-19 virus while in Costa Rica, for at least $50,000

3) Includes minimum coverage of $2,000 for potential quarantine lodging expenses issued as a result of the pandemic

Safe Travels Voyager plan is available to U.S. Citizens and U.S. Residents traveling from the USA and can be purchased for a trip costs up to $100,000.  It includes $250,000 of Primary Medical Coverage and Trip Delay of $2,000 for quarantine accommodations/lodging expenses. Safe Travels Explorer is just the basics - trip costs up to $100,000, $50,000 of medical and $2000 for quarantine accommodations. 

Effective January 26, 2021, all travelers flying into the United States will need to show a negative COVID-19 test before entering the country. Airlines will be responsible for confirming the negative test results for all passengers before they board a flight to the United States. The cost of this mandatory test is not a covered benefit under any of our travel insurance plans. If someone doesn’t receive the test results in time, this would not be a covered travel delay/trip interruption benefit. In the event someone has a positive test, there could be coverage for travel delays for additional accommodations due to quarantine.

Upon purchase, you will receive a visa letter as well as a certificate for you to present to the Republic of Costa Rica. As of January 28, 2021, at 11 AM CST we now offer a plan for persons traveling to Costa Rica from countries other than the USA here: Safe Travels International Cost Saver which includes $50,000 of Primary Medical Coverage and Trip Delay of $2,000 for quarantine accommodations/lodging expenses.
