Border Run (AKA Visa Run)

What is a visa run?

A visa run is a short trip over an international border designed to reset the visa in the originating country of the trip.

The “border run” can be both a big pain in the neck and a great excuse for a little vacation four times a year.  Some of the best “expat adventure” tales (both good and bad) are inspired by events on these quarterly migrations to Nicaragua, Panama or destinations around the world.

Whether it’s a long-term stay in Costa Rica, Panama or any other country, a stay at Nicasita for a day or a week is the perfect way to relax when getting that passport stamp updated!
