Costa Rica fully opens borders for tourists and drops COVID test requirement

Costa Rica will soon eliminate the negative coronavirus test requirement for foreign tourists entering the country, according to authorities. 

Arriving visitors will no longer need to show proof of a negative PCR coronavirus test result, Tourism Minister Gustavo Segura said.

The decision also follows an early-October recommendation from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) which states that conducting coronavirus testing for incoming travelers “is not recommended as a tool to mitigate the risk of international spread.”

Tourists do not need to quarantine upon entering Costa Rica. From 1st November 2020 Costa Rica will open its airports to tourists from all countries and U.S. states.
