To qualify for the digital nomad visa, you must be able to prove income of at lest $3000 US/month for the past 12 months (single applicant). If you are including any dependents on your application, you must prove at least $4000 US/month. If you are unsure whether or not you qualify, send us an email with your bank statements ([email protected]) and we can let you know.

Once we have all of your documents, it usually takes 6-12 weeks until you receive your Step 3 approval, at which point you should come to Costa Rica for your final in-person appointment. You can also arrive in Costa Rica before your Step 3 approval on a tourist visa.

Yes! You can apply for the Costa Rica digital nomad visa from inside the country, provided you are on a legal tourist visa or other visa. Americans and Canadians can get a 90-day tourist visa upon arrival in Costa Rica.

  • proof of payment of the $100 application fee

  • an application form
