Fishing license applications now available online

January 29, 2013

Sport fishing fans and tourism operators in the country now can file their requests for fishing licenses online.

Previously, fishing licenses could only be obtained at the offices of the Costa Rican Fisheries Institute (INCOPESCA). But now the entire process – including payment – can be completed online.

INCOPESCA’s Róger López said that each registered user can add other people, meaning a fisherman can process licenses for everyone on a fishing trip.

A license costs $15 for up to 8 days, $30 per month or $50 for a year. The price is the same for nationals and foreigners.

López said licenses also are still available at INCOPESCA offices.

Fishing licenses can be ordered at: http://www.incopesca.go.cr/carnets/tramites/solicitud.aspx
