Lilian Tintori, the wife of jailed Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, speaks during a meeting with students and relatives of victims of the 2014 anti-government protests, in Caracas, on February 19, 2016.

(QCOSTARICA) Lilian Tintori, the wife of jailed Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez was barred from entering Costa Rica to attend a forum on Thursday because she failed to produce proof of yellow fever vaccination.

Organizers of the event, sponsored by former Costa Rican president and Nobel Peace Prize winner Oscar Arias, Tintori was not allowed to board her flight in the Dominican Republic because of the lack of an immunization certificate.

Tintori was to have spoken as part of the forum’s look at democracy in Latin America.

She has been active in highlighting the incarceration of her husband, who has called for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to step down.

Lopez was last September sentenced to 14 years behind bars on charges of inciting violence at anti-government protests that shook the country in 2014 — a ruling that drew international condemnation.

Venezuela’s new opposition-controlled parliament has approved a first reading of a bill giving amnesty to political prisoners, but Maduro has vowed to veto it to stop it becoming law.

There is no risk of yellow fever in Costa Rica. The government of Costa Rica requires proof of yellow fever vaccination only if you are arriving from a country with risk of yellow fever. This does not include the US or Canada.

Under Costa Rican law, visitors from Latin America countries requiring the Yellow Fever certificate are:
Bolivia, Venezuela, Brasil, Peru Ecuador, Colombia
and French Guyana. Source:http://www.costarica-embassy.org/index.php?q=node/95

Foreigners in Costa Rica travelling to the above countries, with intent to return to Costa Rica must provide proof of vaccination. Costa Rican citizens, including foreigners naturalized in Costa Rica, do not require the certificate.

Vaccination (and certificate) can be obtained in Costa Rica (at most pharmacies – farmacia in Spanish) or in the country of travel. The incubation period is 10 days – that is, 10 days must have lapsed from the date on the vaccination certificate to the date of entry into Costa Rica.
