Online “news” reports that Nicaraguans no longer need visas to enter the United States are false. Changes to visa requirements will always be posted on travel.state.gov, and directly on relevant U.S. embassy and consulate websites. Potential visa applicants are advised to disregard information from unverified or “spoof” news sites.
Starting November 1, 2016, eye glasses will no longer be allowed in visa photos. For further details on photo requirements, click here.
