We provide letters of guarantee for Dominican visa required for residency permits. Please contact us.

Duration of Process:
Once you arrive in the Dominican Republic, we will have a Certificate of 'No Criminal Records' issued by the
National Police in your favor and take you to the Medical Department of Immigration Office in Santo Domingo for
a complete Medical Check-up (blood test and chest x-rays). This check-up has an additional cost of US$125 and is
not included in the overall price.

Upon completion and approval of all paperwork, you will receive a temporary residency permit card (residencia)
and a Dominican identification card (cedula de identidad).  This process takes approximately 3-5 months,
depending on the Dominican migration authorities.

The temporary residency permit is valid for 1 to 1½ years; regardless of the expiration date on your
temporary resident card, you will have the right to live and work in the Dominican Republic. You will also have
the right to leave the country whenever you wish and re-enter with your temporary residence document
(you will not need a tourist card or tourist visa to re-enter).

After your temporary residency card expires, you can renew the permit and change your status to
Permanent Residency. The Permanent Residency is valid for two years at a time and the Dominican identification
card (cedula) for six years.

After completing two years with the permanent residency permit, you may apply for Dominican citizenship and
become formally nationalized (obtaining a Dominican Passport).

Interested? Please don't hesitate to contact us! Our lawyers, notaries, and judicial interpreters are at your
complete service.
