Costa Rica to require proof of vaccine for entry to hotels, bars, more

Travelers, aged 12 and over, to Costa Rica should be ready to present proof of vaccination in order to enter businesses including starting next year.

Businesses “may admit only persons who are verifiably fully-vaccinated (Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca (and) Janssen)” starting Jan. 8, tourism organization Essential Costa Rica said in an announcement Tuesday.

Proof of vaccination should be shown via QR code or on a printed certificate to enter hotels, casinos, bars, adventure tourism facilities and museums, among others. 

To enter the country, travelers are not required to proof of vaccination but unvaccinated travelers must purchase a travel insurance policy that covers costs for COVID-19 care and quarantine if it becomes necessary.

All travelers under 18 can enter without purchasing travel insurance. 

“However, unvaccinated tourists 12 years and older will not be allowed to enter commercial establishments as of January 8,” Essential Costa Rica said.
