El Salvador – New Migration Law for Foreigners

The Special Law on Migration and Foreigners entered in effect as of May 14, 2019. This new law replaces the previous four laws that regulated the powers of the General Directorate of Immigration and Foreigners.

The new law will govern the issuance of granting new residencies and entry visas for business travelers, frequent travelers, investment, humanitarian issues, commercial representatives, studies, and medical reasons. The law will also classify infractions as minor, serious, and very serious, while establishing sanctions, fines, and or deportation for violations.
