Cost Rica Immigrant Investor Program

Costa Rica’s residence by investment program requires foreigners to apply for temporary residence as an investor. The interested foreign person must demonstrate their investment with a capital of not less than US$200,000 in real estate, insurable assets, shares, securities, productive projects or projects of interest national. A total of US$100,000 can be invested in a forest plantation.

The forest plantation investment needs to be held for 3 years, but the other investment needs to be kept as long as you want to maintain a temporary status. Normally an investor would keep an investment for 3 years and then apply for permanent residence.

Cost Rica Rentier

The Costa Rica Rentier program requires the applicants to prove a certain amount of monthly income. It’s similar to the retired pensioner program but without an age requirement.

Foreign applicants need to demonstrate with a document issued by a competent authority that for a period of not less than 2 years they will receive a permanent income of not less than the monthly sum of US$2500.
