Costa Rica Wealth Visa
Application Process

The Costa Rica rentier and pensioner visa provides a three-year resident permit to approved applicants. There is a minimum presence requirement of four months of the year to maintain your status and qualify for permanent residency. Both paths are slightly different in what is considered an eligible source of income.

In both cases, the spouse and dependents 25 years old and under will qualify as dependents. Older children with a disability also qualify, regardless of age. You will also need to present a police clearance certificate from the place where you have resided in the last three years.
