While Costa Rica was well known as a beatiful place to vacation they have now created many incentives for American Americans and foreign nationals to move there or have second homes there. Some of those incentives are:
• The new minimum capital investment requirement to apply for residency was lowered to $150,000.00 so buying a $150,000.00 home in Costa Rica allows you to apply for residency
• Tax free importation of vehicles.
• A one time tax exemption to import household goods
• Income earned outside of Costa Rica will not be taxed (no double taxation) This is IDEAL for remote workers since a new immigration category was created “Digital Nomad Visa”
