Costa Rican migration authorities are considering restricting Mexican and Guatemalan visas to enter the country.
We believe it is time to assess the desirability of more restrictive entry of citizens of both nations, as we have with Colombia and most recently in Jamaica,” an official said.
The idea is that the visas of Mexican and Guatemalan, who currently have no restrictions, are scrutinized prior yo entering the country, in order to determine the backgrounds of these people that are planning to travel to Costa Rica.
These preventive measures are due to the large number of cases in which citizens of these nations appear to be linked to organized crime.
Citing May 9, 2009 when a helicopter carrying 396 kilos of cocaine from the Sinaloa cartel, crashed.
And of course just this past week, when two Guatemalans crasa single engine plane crashed after departing San Jose, carrying 173 kilos of Cocaine bound for Guatemala.
