Once your Costa Rican residency is issued, it will be good for a limited time before it needs to be renewed.
This is typically one year in the case of work permits and spousal residency, two years for pensioned category, rentistas and investors, two to five years for permanent residency.
For all renewals, the following is required:
Your resident card (DIMEX)
Your current passport
Proof of continued affiliation with the Social Security (CCSS)
Receipt of payment for renewal (typically $139 or $111 — if your residency is already expired, an additional $3.39 dollars per month).
Temporary residencies and work permits will have additional requirements, typically to show that you still qualify for that residency category.
Letter proving income of your pension.
Letter of the employer for the guarantee of work permit.
All prices include IVA
