Costa Rica to require visa scrutiny for Mexicans & Guatemalans

“Costa Rican immigration officials are proposing to toughen the issuance of the visa issuance process for citizens of Mexico and Guatemala. The object is to look into a visa applicant’s police or criminal record for citizens of those countries interested in traveling to Costa Rica.

The Vice-Minister for Government, Mario Zamora, said that it’s time to take preventive type actions due to the great number of cases in which citizens of those two countries turn up to be linked with organized crime.

A similar procedure has already been imposed on visa applicants who are citizens of Colombia and Jamaica.”
