  1. A User's Guide to getting Pensionado Resident Status

    Call the Nicaraguan Consulate in DC and get the list of documents you need to bring down with all the approvals and seals. Don't worry about the vocabulary, all the people handling these things have seen them before and know what you're asking them to do.

    Get your doctor to write a letter giving results of TB, AIDS, etc., dieases and attest to your being of sound mind despite this desire to move to Nicaragua and have her sign it in the presence of a notary who then does the notary ...

    We had one day where the person who signs the cedulas wasn't in, so had to come back a week later. Got it then. The final process took about an hour and a half at Migracion.

    I got the paperwork in to Intur with the help of a kiosk lawyer and a bilingual Gringa, and a very nice woman who waited for us after Intur's official closing time on Tuesday. I'll need to call on September 17th for a progress report.

    Now, I find I can spot a gringo from behind and that the people in the street are the non-labeled ones and I'm the exotic. I find this utterly charming, but I suspect that some North Americans can't stand it, just as some people from away in rural Virginia ...
