Can someone please advise the best way to proceed with a move to Nicaragua. Is it best to hire a immigration lawyer or is it something that can be done by oneself?

If you search the site you will find numerous threads about the move to Nicaragua.

All will recommend that you visit first,, travel around the country, see if you really like it. See where you like it best.

The rest will fall into place. You get 90 days initially for a tourist visa. Plenty of time.

Good luck

Just come. And go from there. If youre in a rush study residency requirements so maybe have paperwork ready. If you mean you have a ton of stuff.... just sell it, and bring smallest most valuable. There are expensive and cheaoer experts that can help you get your cedula. Google translate pages on paperwork requirements. Birth certificate and so on. Easier then having someone send down. For me i was back and forth so much for so many years i did it in dribs and drabs. The biggest nuisaince is the apostilla thing from your states capital, and the many visits to managua with docs and fotos and acceptable translations. Make some good bilingual friends here first who can help you do it easiest and cheapest. There are tricks to simplifying process, somewhat. At least used to be! Otherwise expect to pay a lawyer well. Esp if bilingual and in demand. Whats the rush ... better to get your bearings spend time, know some folks.... then do it. Hope something i said helps. Good luck.

Exactly. I used to hike across CR NIC bridge every 3 months to stamp passport. For 15 years! Before even starting cedula residency process.
