Otherwise, the request must be submitted to the Nicaraguan Consular Service offices.

It is important to note that all documents must be presented in Spanish.

  1. Original passport, valid for at least 6 months
  2. Two up-to-date passport-size photographs
  3. Birth certificate or naturalization, as applicable
  4. Health Certificate
  5. Police Record Certificate
  6. Marriage Certificate (if the spouse is also applying for Nicaraguan residency)

In order for your application to be processed, all required documents must be submitted.
