International News: Costa Rica and Honduras agree to reverse visa requirements and ease trade

Posted: Wednesday, October 25, 2023. 9:30 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Tuesday, the leaders of Costa Rica and Honduras agreed to reverse short-lived visa requirements for travelers from their respective countries, Reuters report.

Earlier this month, Costa Rica introduced mandatory visa requirements for Hondurans seeking to enter, citing that the measure was needed to boost security, which prompted reciprocal action from Honduras.

Authorities in Costa Rica have said that rising violence is due to an uptick in international criminal groups trafficking drugs to the United States.

Under the new agreement, visitors will no longer need to present visas to border agents.

However, Costa Ricans seeking to enter Honduras will need a certificate showing their criminal records, while Hondurans seeking to enter Costa Rica will need a certificate detailing any police record.
