Costa Rica Rentista Visa

The Rentisa Visa is the classic Costa Rica residency visa.
Here’s what it takes:
a- Monthly income: The investor must prove income from foreign sources of at least USD$2,500 per month. For this a document from a CPA must be obtained (we can provide the template for the CPA to fill out or we can coordinate with a US CPA to provide this).
b- Funds deposited in a Costa Rica Bank: An investment of USD$60,000.00 would be made with a bank in Costa Rica and a letter would be issued by the bank stating that USD$2,500 will be given to the investor on a monthly basis.


1- Apostilled birth certificate of the applicant and family members, if applicable.
2- Apostilled FBI criminal record report or issued by the applicants country of birth
3- Apostilled marriage certificate (if the applicant is married and filing along with the spouse)
4- Full copies of the applicants passports (we will get these in our office when visiting Costa Rica as a valid tourist stamp must be present on the applicant’s passport to file the residency request).
