The Nicaraguan regime established a treaty with the Cuban dictatorship to grant free visas to the island’s citizens


Nicaragua and Cuba have had close political relations every time the Central American country has been ruled by Daniel Ortega, first between 1979 and 1990, and then from 2007

The Nicaraguan regime established this Monday the “free visa” for citizens of Cuba as a “humanitarian” measure to benefit Cubans with relatives in the Central American country.

A resolution of the Nicaraguan Ministry of the Interior, which came into effect this Monday and was released tonight, has the main objective of facilitating commercial trips, family tourism.

“Given the number of requests from Cuban citizen brothers with relatives in Nicaragua, and in order to promote commercial exchange, tourism and humanitarian family relations, as of Monday, November 22, 2021, a free visa is established for all Cuban citizens who wish to enter Nicaragua “, indicated the Ministry of the Interior.

With this decision, Cubans will no longer have to disburse the equivalent of $ 17.85 to obtain the visa consulted that Nicaragua extends on the island., and that has a duration of 30 days, extendable to 90.

The elimination of the visa for Cuba means that the islanders will also not need to explain the reason for travel in order to obtain permission to travel to Nicaragua.

The authorities of the Nicaraguan regime did not report whether Cubans must abide by the measures of the pandemic to enter Nicaragua, such as the negative covid-19 test with a maximum validity of three days, or the pre-check with seven days in advance.

Until before the covid-19 pandemic, it was common to see Cuban citizens crowded into the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport, lining up to return to Havana, with multiple shopping bags.

The dictatorships of Nicaragua and Cuba have had close political relations every time the Central American country has been governed by Daniel Ortega, first between 1979 and 1990, and then from 2007.

Both countries are part of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America – Peoples’ Trade Treaty (Alba-TCP).
