    Default Residency procedures

    This was sent to me by Managua lawyer Paul Tiffer, to share with TRN users.

    RESIDENCY

    Getting residency can be one the hardest parts of living in Nicaragua for many people, and lack of information is one the reasons.

    It is imperative to know there are three ways to get the residency.

    1. As Investor
    2. As Retiree
    3. As worker

    In all of these cases, the applicant must prove this status and submit supporting documentation, as well as the general documents of any foreigner namely:

    • Birth Certificate
    • Police Record
    • Health Certificate.

    These three documents must be from the applicant's country and MUST be authenticated by the Nicaraguan Consulate in the country where the documents where issued. To get the authentication in USA, for example, it is necessary for the County Clerk to notarize and authenticate them. This is for Canadians too, and because there are no Nicaraguan consulates in Canada, they must authenticated in Canada and sent to the Washington consulate of Nicaragua.

    Then these authenticated documents must be authenticated in the Nicaraguan Foreign Affairs Ministry and translated into Spanish with a Nicaraguan Notary, to be submitted to Immigration.

    The same procedure must be followed for retirees, with the document of annual pension to prove they have the minimum income required for the Nicaraguan law.

    At the moment, this procedure I just told you, must be followed by everybody. There is no possible way to submit documents issued in Nicaragua (police record or Nicaraguan health certificate are not valid for foreign people to get residency) and finally, no one can submit any document to Immigration or any other government offices without the proper authentication I just explained; that is the law.

    Another possibility is if somebody marries a Nicaraguan. In this case, this person will need to submit the whole documentation above (Birth Certificate, Police Record, and Health Certificate), and must submit this additional information:

    • Copy of the ID of you husband/wife
    • Marriage License
    • Support Affidavit (the spouse must declare he/she will support you in Nicaragua)
    • Labor contract or any certification from your spouse’s job.

    I would like to know more about how each country views an American getting married to a Nicaraguan and the American living in Nicaragua.

    Pros/cons

    does Dual citizenship result?
    dual passports?

    Thanks

    No it is udderly ridicules on the part of Nicaraguan Immigration, here back in the late 90's he had temporary residency, working humanitarian work renewable yearly.....

    Now that he has retired and has over 40k invested in property, a wife from here, and a 3 year old child born here, 3k a month which he spends here, has been given an endless runaround, ripped off by lawyers, not given the complete list of things to do in the States, 4 trips back and fourth.....

    I can tell you, he is pretty weary of it all and just wants to take his family and go....

    I had prepared for the application of residency prior to my latest journey to Nicaragua, with documents in hand that I supposedly needed to fulfill my quest.

    Upon hiring an attorney, everything that I had brought with me per instructions, was not good and I should return to the USA to have all of the paperwork reproduced with Notary Public stamps. All of my papers had these stamps.

    It is a friggin run around and another infusion of capital into the system. I saw the writing on the wall and said, excuse me my darlings; frankly I don't give a damned.

    My spouse is an alien. It was far less costly to get her approved in the USA than for me in Nicaragua.

    The value is not there with the run around that one gets from those legal eagles that supposedly know and love the system of milking.

    My regular electric payment is about $ 500 due I have tourists.
    April payment was increadible. My Property Manager went to Managua
    spaniord company, than thy send us to Rivas and than they answer that we have to pay this amount explaining if you use more electricity than
    the rate per KW increases by xxx procentage.I wish to be not true
    but it is what it is.It is not funny to pay such a amount.I even ask lawyer
    from Granada to talk to electric company but he refused .
