There are two ports that your vehicle can be shipped to; Puerto Limon and Puerto Caldera. These ports are the chosen ports to receive car/truck imports and clear them. Your shipping agent can assist you in determining which port your vehicle should be shipped two prior to your shipment date.

Since Costa Rica requires emissions testing on vehicles that are being imported into the country, your vehicle will need this test too before it can be shipped. This test must be done within two months of being transported. You can choose either to permanently import your vehicle or to temporarily import it but either way; you will need to have the emissions test performed on your vehicle. However, it’s important to note that which ever one you choose, it will affect the way your vehicle is tested.

There are many factors that are considered when providing a quote to you. Before your vehicle can be shipped to Costa Rica, you will need to have the following documentation ready and available. It’s probably best that you make copies and keep the originals to ensure that you have them all when the transport is complete. You will need:

  • Bill of Lading
  • Your current passport
  • Your driver's license – Be sure to copy both sides
  • Your registration certificate of your vehicle
  • Your title to your vehicle which should be clear of any liens
  • A notarized authorization permitting your transport specialist to pick up your vehicle in your absence
  • Temporary use permit, TVUP
  • The results of your emissions test

Β Steps of Procedure

To get started, you will first need to fill out the forms requesting your import from the United States to Costa Rica. You will then need to provide copies of all the documents listed above and the duration in which you plan to have your import started and completed. If you are a citizen returning to Costa Rica, you will need to provide some type of proof of your residency from before. All fees will need to be paid for a temporary import permit. Currently, it is $25.00 or $15 if you choose to go through the Costa Rica National Insurance Institute.
