    Default Cedula renewal how-to, Oct 2013

    I posted this (deleted)


    If you are married, bring Imelda with you to talk Spanish fast and buy her a pair of shoes in Managua.
    ************************************************** **************************

    Oct, 2018: I deleted this old link because it was bad and Migracion has made many changes in the past 5 years.

    Not going to post info that may be invalid tomorrow. If you are going to renew you cedula, I suggest--

    Forget what worked so easily last time.

    Ignore info posted on Migracion website and the wall at Migracion.

    Go to Migracion and your migracion lawyer and get a written list of what you need to do and how you need to do it. Grill everybody for details.

    The Consulate seems to have lost the man who did notarizations and with him all of his experience. Hopefully the new staff will get up to speed before you need to go there. Buyer beware.

    Carry a flashdrive and get copies of everything on the drive. Scan everything into your home computer.

    Have access to a program that will convert pdf to Word.

    Passport, not cedula, size photos seem to be preferred. Ask.

    Stationary stores sell a plastic folder which is good for hauling around legal size documents.

    If you download proof of income, etc. from the net, eyeball it well. It often has a buttload of boilerplate and internet basura that will have to be translated and confuses the crap out of everyone involved.

    There is a maxi pali hidden in plain sight across from Migracion for pee and munchies. Bring tp to Migracion bano.

    The first 2 times I used my local lawyer for the one crummy form that was necessary. No, more, you need a migracion lawyer in Managua. Among other things, they will have the magic dust to tell who translated your docs.

    From what I can see, all of the changes from last time have to do with killing trees and moving electrons and have nothing to do with the current political situation or any generalized dislike for furriners.

    Have a nice next 5 years!

    I guess shoes are the ultimate gift for women.. Look at the Wizard of Oz.. women fighting tooth and nail over a pair of shoes, NOT to mention that Girl with the Glass Slippers in another Story...
    To be called a "Has Been" I must surmise, is much Greater than to be called a "Nevah Been"... JW...

    Do you have Imelda's phone number?

    Seriously, what is a Constancia de Jubilacion?

    Can't they just look at you and tell that you're an old fart?

    Imelda is everywhere. Or is it Ymelda? anyway, they built a shoe museum in her memory in the Philippine, but her spirit lives throughout the Segovias.

    If they just looked at you they would have to flatten you out, notarize you according to the Law of Photocopies of the Republic of Nicaragua and staple at least one hole in you.

    This deal thru the Consulate is much better than my original proof of income which had to be stamped by 6 offices in 5 different cities.
