While the Nicaraguan government has not officially announced border restrictions, the land borders with Costa Rica and Honduras are closed. All commercial air service between Nicaragua and the United States remains suspended until at least early June.

Additional suspensions, closures, or other restrictions on movement could occur with no advance warning.

The Embassy advises U.S. citizens still in Nicaragua to prepare now to shelter in place.

U.S. citizens remaining in Nicaragua must ensure they have an adequate supply of food, water, and medicine to shelter for at least two weeks.
