Quarantine for Costa Ricans and Permanent Residents who Return to the Country with a Negative Test for COVID-19 is no Longer Mandatory

Also people with a first degree of consanguinity to Costa Ricans may also enter the country regardless of where they are coming from

The 14-day home quarantine will no longer be mandatory for Costa Ricans and foreigners with the category of permanent residents who choose to return to the country by air, as long as they present a negative test result for the novel Coronavirus (done in the prior 48 hours) and demonstrate that they have remained at least two weeks in the nation of origin.

It also eliminates a restriction of entry by air to Costa Rica, to foreign nationals who have the categories of permanent or temporary residence, or other special categories of stay.
