Question by beemerbuff: Does Costa Rica allow felons from the US to visit?
I would like to visit Costa Rica, and bring a friend who has a felony conviction from 24 years ago. Will Costa Rica allow him to visit?
Answer by dougger
Yes, if his current record is clean. For most violations a five year period without getting into trouble is enough. But the record keeping leaves a lot to be desired. Make sure you friend has an updated record and his name is not on the wrong lists.
If his conviction is 24 years old he may ask that the record be cleared. He may have a chance of having it lifted, depending on the severity of the crime, and where.
