NICARAGUA – New Entry Request Form Required Before Travel

Effective immediately, the Nicaraguan Immigration Directorate (DGME) has introduced a new requirement for travelers entering Nicaragua for reasons other than tourism to submit, at least seven days in advance of travel, an entry request form by email.

What is the Procedure?

  • Any organisation in Nicaragua hosting foreign nationals to enter for any purpose other than tourism must download, complete and sign the entry request form here, and email it to these two email addresses: and
  • If the host organisation is sponsoring more than one foreign national, a document listing all the travellers can be attached to the email, including their full name, passport or travel/identity document number, nationality, date of birth and the proposed dates and ports of entry and exit.
  • Approval will be notified to the applicant and to the port of entry.

Action Items

  • Companies sponsoring foreign nationals to travel to Nicaragua for work or other non-tourist purposes should ensure they submit a completed entry request form at least seven days in advance of the intended date of entry, to avoid delaying the date of entry or the start of the assignment.
