Important Message for U.S. Citizens Regarding the Dissemination of Routine Security Messages

Please note that the Embassy will no longer send routine security messages relating to demonstrations, strikes, and weather-related events via email.  In an effort to disseminate information more expeditiously, the Embassy will post these types of security messages directly on our website under our Important Messages to U.S. Citizens tab, located at http://nicaragua.usembassy.gov/messages2.html.  Please check this page regularly for up-to-date messages from U.S. Embassy Managua.  This information will also be accessible via the updated Country Specific Information section for Nicaragua on the Department of State website at https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/country/nicaragua.html.
