Applying for a cédula
I'm a retired American farmer who would like to obtain permanent residency, el cédula, plus maybe a few hectares of land in northern Nica. How daunting is the immigration paperwork, starting with the US Consulate in Miami, where there is mention of 'General Authentication Certificates', notorizing and translating the standard forms of birth certificate, criminal record, marriage license, and health certificate. And did another Post say that the background record had to be notorized at a US state attorney's office plus at a local police station? Then there is something called the 'Apostle', which seems to be a step up from a simple certification? Then in Managua I take all that stuff [plus a return plane ticket?], copied 3 times, to Immigration, Intur, and the US Embassy and apply for a the carta de baja? But I can only apply for a one-year card for the next 3 years? It would seem like a poor country heavily in debt would make it easier for foreigners to move to.
