I'm a Filipino and presently working here in Qatar.

I want to visit Costa Rica - what are the requirements of getting a tourist visa for that country?

It does not matter where you are currently living, what matters is which passport you hold. Assuming you hold a passport from the Philippines, you do not need a visa to enter Costa Rica:


LENGTH OF STAY: maximum of 30 days

All adults and children require the following documents to enter Costa Rica:

  • A valid passport. The passport has to be valid for at least 3 months after arrival date to Costa Rica.
  • A return ticket to exit Costa Rica (either to return to your country or to go to another country).

From here: http://www.costarica-embassy.org/?q=node/49


No visa required according to the following website. You can be there for up to 30 days.
