Now Visitors Can Pay Costa Rica Airport Departure Tax Online

Travelers to Costa Rica will be able to pay their exit tax online beginning in December.

Just in time for the onset of the tourist season, Bancrédito (Banco Créditor Agrícola de Cartago) is introducing a new system which will allow visitors to pay their exit tax online.

The new system is intended to reduce wait time at the airport and allow travelers the flexibility of paying anywhere in the world. The Web site, which is expected to go live on Dec. 1, can be accessed at

“Bancrédito is working with the Finance Ministry in the modernization of tax collecting services, with the aim of eliminating lines [and] offering mechanisms of electronic payment that facilitate and expedite payment of the tax,” wrote Arnoldo Trejos Dobles, general manager of Bancrédito.

The Costa Rica airport exit tax, currently $26 US, can also be paid at select Costa Rica hotels such as the Intercontinental and Holiday Inn.
