Anyone get Nicaraguan citizenship?

New Topic Newest First

I'm an American interested in getting my Nicaraguan passport. As I understand, upon getting the Nicaraguan passport, they require you to "renounce" your first citizenship but do not actually enforce it and make you go through on anything. So I understand I'd have to leave and enter Nicaragua only using the Nica passport and use my US passport when I enter and leave the US. Does anyone have experience with this? Can you let me know if there were any issues with the Nicaraguan authorities keeping the US passport after getting the Nica one? Thanks!!

I had a friend do that a few years back.

No,, you don't actually have to renounce US citizenship, You can keep your US passport.

I was considering the same thing, but haven't pursued it yet. I understand that you have to live in Nicaragua as a resident for 5 years before you apply.

My friend moved to Guatemala shortly after becoming a Nica citizen. He has a small hotel on Lake Atitlan


Please let me know what you find out.

I'm not asking how to get a passport. I'm asking if anyone in this forum has already gotten a Nica passport. I'd like to know about the "renouncing" your original passport and if there's any enforcement.
