Costa Rica tops the Happy Planet Index, which measures ecological sustainability along with human well-being and life expectancy. In 2021, the country also achieved the remarkable feat of generating all its electricity from renewable sources like hydropower, geothermal, solar, and wind power. This sets a global example for sustainability and acts as one of the many reasons over 1 million Americans choose to visit Costa Rica every year.
Over 120,000 Americans already call Costa Rica home, embracing its Pura Vida spirit. Joining them? You will need an apostille stamp on your FBI clearance certificate for residency, work permits, or legal matters.
We offer a quick and affordable FBI background check and apostille service for Costa Rica so that you don’t have to look elsewhere for your US criminal record check.

With Globeia, this option is cheaper as compared to completing the process yourself. You can simply mail any of the required documentation to our San Francisco office. This also eliminates the need for filling out extensive forms as we will take care of it for you.

Apostille is a verification procedure conducted by the document issuing country. U.S. States have their own management systems to apostille documents such as birth, marriage, and divorce certificates. However, federal documents such as FBI criminal background checks are verified by the US Department of State.
You don’t need authentication and consular legalization of your FBI clearance certificate for Costa Rica, since it is a Hague Convention member.
