Costa Rica Required Travel Insurance

CDC Requirements to Re-Enter the United States 

Effective January 26, 2021, all travelers flying into the United States will need to show a negative COVID-19 test before entering the country. Airlines will be responsible for confirming the negative test results for all passengers before they board a flight to the United States. The cost of this mandatory test is not a covered benefit under any of our travel insurance plans. If someone doesn’t receive the test results in time, this would not be a covered travel delay/trip interruption benefit. In the event someone has a positive test, there could be coverage for travel delays for additional accommodations due to quarantine.

Upon purchasing travel insurance from Trawick International, you will receive a visa letter as well as a certificate for you to present to the Republic of Costa Rica.
