IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Nicaragua has suspended its visa waiver for Iranian nationals.
What does the change mean? Iranian nationals planning to travel to Nicaragua are now required to apply for a Consulted Visa before traveling.
Background: The Nicaraguan General Directorate of Migration announced the policy Nov. 17, saying it would go into effect immediately. In addition to losing visa-exempt status, Iranians can no longer avail themselves of the CA-4 common visa, which allows foreign nationals to travel among Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with the single visa.
BAL Analysis: Iranian nationals should be aware that they are no longer visa-waived and should allow plenty of time to gather necessary documents to apply for a Consulted Visa before making travel plans.
