Costa Rica Data Processing License for online gambling projects

Data Processing License can be obtained by both local Costa Rica legal entities that are tax resident companies and foreign companies that do not have actual presence in in the country's territory but have registration here ( ideal solution for online gambling projects).

Data Processing License allows establishing, operating and managing online gambling activities internationally. Costa Rica citizens are not allowed to participate in online gambling thus having Data Processing License you must block all Internet addresses in Costa Rica on your web-site.

To obtain a Data Processing License in Costa Rica an office has to be rented in order for the inspectors of the local Municipality to verify that the business really exists. Prior to obtaining the License a Sanitary Permit must be obtained from the Ministry of Public Health. Several documents must be filed to the Municipality in order to determine that the corporation has no pending payments to these institutions. Once the Data Processing License is issued by the Municipality the office must continue open since Municipal Officers will make periodical inspections to determine that the business is still functioning.
