OUR SERVICE IS NOT REQUIRED TO APPLY FOR RESIDENCY IN EL SALVADOR. EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO SUBMIT THEIR DOCUMENTS TO THE IMMIGRATION OFFICE WITHOUT USING A LAWYER. OUR SERVICE IS A CONVENIENCE, AND WE ARE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ABOUT THE RESIDENCY PROCESS, FREE OF CHARGE. THIS SERVICE IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE FROM YOUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.

This service includes:

  • A personal interview to determine the appropriate visa program for your situation. We prefer to use Keet for video conferencing, messaging, and sharing of sensitive files.
  • A Power of Attorney allowing us to create and submit the residency application on your behalf. To create this document, we require a high-resolution copy of the identity page of your passport. Before we submit the application, we will require high-resolution copies of all the stamped pages in your passport, temporary possession of the physical passport so that the immigration officer processing your case can compare it to the copies, good conduct forms from your residence(s) for the past two years, and a variety of other documents specific to the visa program for which you apply. We will also need a formal address where you will be staying in El Salvador at the time of your application and during the review of the application. The address may change, i.e. be temporary accommodation, but if it does change, you must make us aware of the new address, preferably before you move. Immigration usually performs an unannounced visit (liveness check) toward the end of its review at the address you indicate. We will also request a phone number, which will be provided to immigration as well.
  • We will work with you to request any foreign documents needed to support your application, as well as coordinating the notarization and apostille/authentication of those documents.
  • We will either pay directly, or reimburse you for all fees related to the issuance, professional indications, and mailing of the documents.
  • We will provide the translation of any required documents into Spanish by an official Salvadoran translator.
  • We will provide for the secondary notarizing of all documents by an official Salvadoran attorney.
  • We will perform the final review of your application by a Salvadoran attorney, and submit it on your behalf. You must be in-country when the application is submitted, appear at the immigration office in order to be photographed for your ID, and remain in the country until a decision is made in your case, or your application will likely be denied. This process usually takes less than two months.
  • We will pay the application fees for a one-year visa. Please note: the final decision on how long your visa is issued for rests solely with the immigration officer reviewing your case. In some instances, an applicant may choose to apply for, and pay for, a two year visa – but only be issued a visa for one year. There is no appeal to this decision.
  • We will also provide introductions to our local community of English-speaking service providers who cover any possible needs you may have during your time in El Salvador.

* Dependents under 18 must be added at the time of purchase with the ‘Minors’ service for a discounted fee of $750 (they require a legalized, original birth certificate, additional rules apply); Adult companions (spouses) may be added with the ‘Companions’ service at the time of purchase for a discounted fee of $1,500 each (they require a legalized, original marriage certificate, additional rules apply).

* We do not offer payment plans. All fees must be paid in full at the time service begins in order to retain the services of the various professionals necessary to successfully file your application.

* If you move during your application process, or at any time while a legal resident, you must submit a change of address via this form physically to the immigration office within five days of your move.

* Original documents that you submit to immigration become the property of the government of El Salvador. They will not be returned to you. If you want extra copies to keep for other purposes, you need to request additional copies from the authorities in your country of origin.

* The applicants’ name on every document submitted must match their passport exactly. Many documents have additional requirements, including expiration dates that may not be obvious. Please inquire for your specific circumstance.
