Costa Rica Opens New Consulate in Nicaragua

July 13, 2007

Costa Rica opened a new consulate in the southern Nicaraguan town of Rivas recently to help regulate the migratory flow of Nicaraguan workers here.

Costa Rican Foreign Minister Bruno Stagno, together with his Nicaraguan counterpart Samuel Santos, inaugurated the new consulate. Also in attendance were Jaime Lacadena, Spain’s Ambassador to Nicaragua, and Aurora Díaz, director of the Spanish Foreign Ministry’s Department of Cooperation for Spain and Latin America.

The Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECI) donated $2.7 million to open the consulate in an effort to improve conditions for Nicaraguan immigrants seeking work in Costa Rica and to promote social integration.

During his visit to Nicaragua, Stagno also remarked that the Costa Rican Consulate in Managua will undergo “surgery” to repair the disorder, chaos and long lines users typically face, according to the daily La Nación.

The first step will be looking for a bigger building so that users don’t have to wait in line under the hot sun before entering.
