Costa Rica has a special Staying Permit for medical treatment. Applying for this category requires that the medical institution certifies that the applicant is receiving treatment and that it is needed to be in the country.

Also, the length of the staying permit is if the medical center says the treatment will last.

The applicant must demonstrate economic solvency to stay in Costa Rica and pay for the medical services.

A birth certificate and background check will be needed if the stay is longer than six months.

Do not hesitate to ask for our help if you need to move to Costa Rica for a short time associated with medical treatment. We will be glad to help you and ease your recovery by getting migration papers done for you.
