Costa Rica implements new rules for driver's licenses for foreign nationals

The Costa Rican government recently implemented new rules regarding driver's licenses that impact foreign visitors (including for business purposes) and lawful temporary and permanent residents of Costa Rica. Foreign nationals visiting Costa Rica for business purposes who hold a valid driver's license issued abroad may now use their foreign license to drive the same type of vehicle authorized by such document in Costa Rica during their full term of authorized stay, granted upon legal entry to the country. Previously, visitors were only allowed to use their foreign driver's license for three months.
