QCOSTARICA – Any foreigner who defines themself as a digital nomad and who wishes to choose Costa Rica for their telework, explore and live unique tourist experiences, can now have the necessary information at hand to prepare the trip.

Costa Rica’s digital nomad program invites international residents to work remotely from the land of Pura Vida.

The Instituto Costarricense de Turismo (ICT) – Costa Rican Tourism Institute –  developed a specialized microsite for these travelers at www.visitcostarica.com.

The microsite is dedicated entirely to digital nomads, where they can find information about the benefits upon arrival in Costa Rica, as well as the requirements they must meet to obtain their stay, the steps to obtain the issuance of an immigration document, data on the medical services policy that must be purchased, together with details for a future renewal of their immigration status and other specifications of interest.

The microsite, mainly focused on digital nomads from the United States and Canada, includes relevant tourist information on Costa Rica.

Carolina Trejos, ICT Marketing Director, commented that the recent approval of the Digital Nomads Law contributes to the process of reactivating the national economy. At a time when entrepreneurs need support, the digital nomad segment will be able to contribute to the recovery of the country and now, with this information site, they will have at hand everything they need to know to know and work in our country.

“Our greatest potential is in those markets where Costa Rica has a great position and knowledge, such is the case of the United States, where 50% of digital nomads come from. We are a country with high connectivity that allows visitors to communicate and connect with their companies from anywhere in the world”, added Trejos.

Finally, the ICT spokeswoman stated that “we are a destination characterized by peace, nature, sustainability, solidarity, hospitality, well-being; a commitment to the environment, with a variety of offers, as well as an adequate value versus price ratio.

This promotional action is part of the beginning of a promotion and marketing strategy that ICT will develop, focused on digital marketing on specific platforms, social networks and media of high interest for potential “digital teleworkers”.
