Moving with Children

CHILDREN PROTECTED BY COSTA RICAN LAW

 

If there are children in your party, it is important for you to know that as soon as you get your Residency, your children will be protected by the Costa Rican government, and so, if they need to travel abroad, they will need a special permit signed by both their parents, otherwise, they might not be able to leave the country even though they travel with both. Upon signing this permit, you can state whether they can travel on their own, or accompanied by specific persons, and either for once, for a term, or forever.
