Further, in order to encourage pensioners and retirees to move and buy real estate in Nicaragua, a recent legislation Decree No. 628, the “Law of Resident Pensioners and Retirees” makes foreigners over the age of forty-five eligible for certain benefits provided they have a monthly income of at least $400. This is increased by an additional $100 for each dependent family member who will live with you in Nicaragua.

The retiree can also import household goods worth $ 10,000 and a car for personal use free of duty and import tax. The car can be sold after five years and is exempt from consumer sales tax. An additional car can be imported every five years under the same tax exemption.

Clearance from your former local police department stating that you have never been convicted of any crime

Certificate of income from your bank or pension plan affirming that you will have enough money to meet the minimum requirement of $400 a month
