    You need cedula for DR DL. I don't think cedula comes with Regularization, only with Residency.

    I agree with this but really have no idea if it is right?!

    This poll is coming in with a relatively small sample within what should be expected from the available information on number of non Haitian foreigners at onset of Regularization plan and biometric cedula renewals plus estimations of expats taking up plan and other visas.

    Bravo the poster in another thread who suggested the 17,000 number which is plus or minus in the right area.

    Still a large number of other foreigners and easy to identify where the bulk live.

    A personal opinion is that the French/Italian community in Samana has a higher percentage of residual illegals.

    Joke... but if you fly out of the DR don't expect to be let back into the country. That is the rub. You now have no documentation that allows you to stay indefinitely in the DR. If you think you are smarter than everyone else...ignorance is bliss.

    On the flip side of the coin, a punny piece of plastified hard plastic, sadly doesnt protect anyone here......

    If some politico wakes up one morning and for whatever reason, decides to change the migracion law pro actively..... we are all back to square 1.

    The chance you take. I myself do not worry about something that unlikely.

    I need that plastic card to get another plastic card called a driver's license. And it helps in banking and insurance.

    Why wouldnt they? There is more money in that. Especially when the US dollar fails and people try to flee the ensuing police state. They can sell citizenship to the highest bidder...for a while, until the DR fails when those dollar remesas stop coming.

    No chances taken here, either. I have my plastic card. Just saying in the big scheme of things in doesnt mean squat.

    Huh? I admit I am currently here on an overstayed tourist visa. So if I fly back to the UK to start the normal residency process at the DR embassy in London, they won't let me back in to the DR to complete the process?
