The Nicaragua Dispatch put your question to Costa Rican Ambassador Javier Sancho Bonilla, who said:
“That’s right, the consulate (in Rivas) is closed indefinitely. All consular processing — including entrance visas for Costa Rica — must be done in the consulates in Managua or Chinandega; this is due to the new system of visa security that is available only in Managua and Chinandega and not Rivas, which is no longer in operation.”
