August 26. The United Kingdom on Thursday kept Costa Rica on a the RED Countries list. As such, it entry is reserved only to UK nationals who must quarantine in hotels paid for by the passenger.
The so-called “red list,” to which Costa Rica was added in June, prohibits entry except for British or Irish citizens or legal residents. They must remain isolated for 10 days in a government-designated hotel, paying 1,750 pounds ($2,470 dollars) for their stay.
The UK says its residents “should not travel to red list countries or territories.”
Costa Rica is averaging the 21st most new cases per capita over the past week, according to The New York Times global tracker.
Other countries on the red list include Panama, Mexico and all of South America.
