For those UK visa applicants based in Nicaragua, you may elect contacting VFS for us to come to your location to collect your biometrics by purchasing the VFS On-Demand Mobile Visa Service (more details below) or you may select to apply at any UK VAC in the region. Please note the nearest UK visa application centre (VAC) from Nicaragua is located in Panama City, Panama. To start your visa application to enter the United Kingdom, please click here.

Please note:

  • UKVI Customers who travel from Nicaragua and other Central American countries to Panama for their VAC appointment are eligible to have their passports returned to them for return travel to Nicaragua following their appointment. Applicants availing of this service will need to send their passport to UKVI within 5 working days of their return with a return airway bill to prevent a delay in processing. This service is not available in Mexico.

    This is not a passport passback service which is only available in Bogota and requires an additional payment.
