Immigration support for hiring expats in Nicaragua via a PEO
If your business objectives are related to hiring expatriate personnel in Nicaragua, there are some things you need to consider, from the peculiarities of immigration procedure in Nicaragua to documents required to get a work permit, and local payroll for foreign citizens.
If your company is hiring or planning to hire expats in Nicaragua, an in-country PEO employment post immigration might be a viable alternative to incorporation. A global PEO company will guide you through every step of immigration procedure in Nicaragua and render a ‘no entity hiring’ after visa or permit receipt.
