    Default The Residency: Feb 5, 2019

    After 10 years I decided it was time. I got my paperwork ready,, it was easier than I thought. The Apostiles only cost me $5 each. Iowa, and Arizona.

    I went to an upscale lab in Esteli for urine, poop, and blood. The next day I got a call: "you failed the poop test".
    I came up with what I thought was a clever solution to transfer the poop from Point A to the small specimen jar, but it turns out that TP contaminates the sample.
    So, I did it again, got a positive report:

    Color: Cafe
    Consistencia: Blanda
    Alor: Tufosa
    Sabor: Chocolate

    I may have taken some poetic license with the last two.

    Armed with my results I found my way to the Centro de Salud and got my health certificado. A lawyer whom I had used before for a small matter agreed to do all the notary work on the translations, and provide what needed to go on escritura publica ( that blue lined paper you buy for legal filings).

    I took the originals, and the working translations to Intur. A helpful young woman gave everything the once over, pronounced us on the right track, sent us over to migración to buy the application form, and provided her phone number for the lawyer in case there were questions.

    I then proceeded to Pricesmart and that big Sinsa in Esquipulas. The most important part of the residency process. I have plenty of Charmin,, but bought another
    36 roll pack just in case the economy tanks while I'm stuck here.

    The lawyer is charging me C$2600 for everything.
    A lot of notary work. I'm paying Arielka $350 to do all the running, the translations. She has really been responsive.
    We are meeting back in Managua next Thurs on my way back from CR. The migración form was 50 cordobas.

    A jubilado package is submitted to Intur, which I'll do next Thurs. They pass on it,, and supposedly,, this avoids problems and interaction with migración.

    The Intur woman told me to be patient,, "this could take up to a year" We'll see.
    I'll update the post as the process advances.

    Residency requires that you give a shit? Are you sure they weren't trolling you? And they say US residency laws are bad...

    So,, I turned in the residency package, today, the 14th of Feb. We got a different woman this time,, older, she combed through the paperwork and finally pronounced it suitable.

    She pointed out that my police report expired tomorrow. It only has a 3 month life. I thought it was 6 months.

    So she said,, "I'll process it today."

    We got long well, my Spanish served me.
    We filled out the actual immigration form in front of her from worksheets we had filled out previously.

    Arielka and I were the only clients in the INTUR office, so this is a good time to initiate the process.

    Moving on,, they will provide me a "pass" so I don't have to leave the country while my application is being processed.

    There is no cost, but I have to present myself to migración every 30 days with my paper scrap. Like the certificado del salud, it's printed on that light brown foolscap that teachers used to hand out in grade school.
