How to Live in Costa Rica’ A Costa Rica law that hopes to attract remote workers (often called, ‘Digital Nomads’) to Costa Rica has passed both debates in the Legislative Assembly and will become law when President Carlos Alvarado signs it. But is becoming a ‘digital nomad’ better than being a ‘perpetual tourist’? I will first explain what a ‘digital nomad’ is and what a ‘perpetual tourist’ is.

Outline of Digital Nomad Bill-
The bill — which has the support of the Tourism Board (ICT) and various other sectors — still needs to be signed by the President and published in La Gaceta. It may then take several weeks for authorities to determine the specific legal processes regarding the new visa.
The law will grant year-long visas in Costa Rica for qualifying remote workers, often called “digital nomads.”
Requirements for Costa Rica’s digital nomad visa
As indicated by the final text of the bill, the requirements to qualify for Costa Rica’s proposed digital nomad visa are as follows:
1. Proof of a stable monthly salary, fixed income or a average monthly income, during the last year, for an amount equal to or greater than $3,000. If the applicant chooses to request benefits also for their family group, the income may be combined with a spouse or one of the other family members and must in that case reach the sum of $4,000. In either case, it must be income that can be continue to be received even if the person is not in their country of origin.
2. Obtain a medical insurance policy that covers the applicant throughout their stay in Costa Rica. The General Directorate of Migration and Foreigners will determine the conditions or minimum coverage that this policy must have.
3. Make a one-time payment for the granting of a non-resident visa, as a Worker or Remote Service Provider. The amount has yet to be determined.
