In order to protect Costa Rican tourists of any capricious or unreasonable acts by Nicaraguan authorities, the Foreign Ministry (Cancielleria in Spanish) asks travelers to report to authorities before leaving Costa Rica for travel to Nicaragua.

The objective is to have knowledge of the immigration status of Costa Ricans in the neighbouring country and their return to home soil, according to Gustavo Campos, an official of the Consular Section of the Foreign Ministry .

The idea of (travellers) advising the Foreign Ministry is so that it can offer consular assistance in case of arrest in Nicaragua, also advising nationals on what cannot be done in that country to avoid legal problems there.
