Exit Visa for one year for Residents
Exit Visa for one year.
The new immigration law allows the Immigration Department to issue a Multiple Exit Visa to residents for a maximum time of one year, instead of six months as the previous law established. The advantage is during one year any resident – legal resident under condition one or two, investor, retirees or any other status – can come and go without any limitation, just the payment of the Exit Visa during one year. This Multiple Exit Visa must be paid in the Immigration department near “Carretera Norte" or north highway. At the airport, only the Ordinary Exit Visa is available – it allows you to leave just once. The cost of the Multiple Exit Visa is C$ 1,600 Cordoba (less than $ 70.00), however; it must be paid in Cordoba, they don´t accept US dollars. Obtaining the Exit Visa is mandatory to any foreigner who gets Residency in Nicaragua, and it is quite simple. Just complete a one page form – in Spanish – and make the payment. It could be for one, for three, six months or even one year. In the main cities there is a branch of the Immigration Department. In Granada for example, it is near Sandino´s park. In my opinion they will be able to sell the Multiple Exit Visa too.
