    Maruti - you need a visa. There is no Costa Rica embassy in Africa though so you must apply via the UK or USA embassy. Please see here for details: I suggest you email.

    You can also use a Visa agency. They will be quicker and take a lot of stress out of the process. We recommend:
    Travel Visa Pro
    Global Visas

    I am American and travelling to Costa Rica at the end of March. My passport expires in May, will I have to renew it in order to enter the country? I read somewhere that my passport needs to be valid for 6 months after I arrive. Is this true for American citizens as well?

    Thank you!
