Benefits of being a Digital Nomad in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is an amazing country, surrounded by nature and with perfect options for those who work remotely. One of the main benefits for Digital Nomads is that Law 9996 was recently approved and it grants specific benefits to those who have the country as their destination.

The “Digital Nomad Visa” is part of a new category of stay that seeks to attract remote workers to the country, providing legal security and incentives to those foreigners and companies that choose Costa Rica as their headquarters.

This law will grant one-year permits in Costa Rica for qualified remote workers. The Digital Nomad Visa is granted for one year, renewable for an additional year if the beneficiary has remained in the country for a minimum of 180 days.


Requirements for the Digital Nomad Visa

  • Proof of stable monthly salary, fixed income or average monthly income, during the last year, for an amount equal to or greater than $3,000.
  • If the applicant chooses to request benefits for their family group, the income may be combined with that of a spouse or one of the other family members and must in that case reach the sum of $4,000. In any case, it must be income that can continue to be received even if the person is not in their country of origin.
  • Obtain a medical insurance policy that covers the applicant during their entire stay in Costa Rica. The Dirección General de Migración y Extranjería (Immigration Office) will determine the minimum conditions or coverage that this policy must have.
  • Make a single payment for the granting of a non-resident visa, as a Remote Worker or Service Provider. The amount has not yet been determined.
  • Any other requirement derived from the General Migration Law and the Migration Law No. 8764. (You can read more here.)
