  • San Jose, Costa Rica

We recommend you contact the embassy in your home country for the most up to date information since visa regulations change frequently and often without prior notice. Applying for a visa is different from country to country, sometimes even from one official to another. Beyond Abroad recommends that students take care of the visa well before departing for the destination.

Check the latest updates about applying for visas, the required documents, as well as the opening hours of the embassy’s website or by calling the embassy directly. Embassies are open according to the public holidays of the country they represent, as well as the holiday of the country where they are located.

Costa Rica

Many nations including European citizens are entitled to travel to Costa Rica for 90 days as a tourist without a visa. This is recommended for students studying in Costa Rica for one semester as it might take longer than 6 months to finalize the student visa procedure in Costa Rica.

Our experienced student support staff understands that each student has different housing needs. With an accent on the experience, we work with students to consider several living options that provide multicultural social experiences, familiar comforts, independence, or anything in between.

Airbnb is a popular option. There are many offers for month-long rental contracts for private rooms or 1-bedroom apartments. Moreover, we suggest checking out student Facebook groups. Many international students are looking for long-term accommodation or a roommate there.

“Eight percent of our GDP is invested in education because we don’t have to spend on the army. So our strength is human talent, human wellbeing.”

Carlos Alvarado Quesada, President of Costa Rica
