There are various ways to obtain your residency in Costa Rica. One of the easiest and sometimes overlooked ways is to buy Costa Rica property.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country to live in.

There are various ways to obtain your residency in Costa Rica, such as qualifying under the categories of (Renter, Pensioner, and Investor).

There is one category that many foreigners in Costa Rica qualify for without knowing it: the residency category of Investor.

How is that possible? It is possible due to a lack of knowledge (why we share this post).

The main requirement for the Investor category of residency is investing in a Costa Rican property or business with a minimum value of $150,000 USD. Here is the full list of requirements for applying for Residency as an Investor.

As stated before, many foreigners in Costa Rica have already met this requirement. They are either living in the country, making frequent visa runs, or visiting the country once or twice a year as a form of retirement.

Our desire is to reach and help many people (possibly yourself) qualify under this category is an opportunity worth taking advantage of.

If you qualify for residency under this category or know someone that does, we are here to help. If you need financing, do not hesitate to contact us HERE.
