“If a person has recovered from Covid-19, full vaccination may be achieved with just one dose of the vaccine. In this case, it is necessary to have a positive PCR test performed before receiving the vaccine.

“This PCR test must be at least 28 days old and at most six months old. The proof of recovery must be present in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish (in paper or digital format),” adds the German Embassy.

Those who require a visa for travel to Germany and have complete vaccination can make an appointment to apply for the visa as of today, June 21, 2021.

Costa Ricans can travel to Germany as tourists without a visa.
