UK government support 

There is no resident British diplomatic mission in Nicaragua, and FCDO cannot give in-person consular assistance. If you need emergency consular assistance or have passport-related issues, contact the British Embassy in San Jose, Costa Rica, on +506-2258-2025. Replacement travel documents may take up to 4 weeks longer than normal to reach you.
