    Any Haitian that enters on a valid tourist visa is able to pay the overstay fee when they leave. The fact is, they didn't enter on a tourist visa, they entered illegally, and they have no intention of ever leaving.

    In fact, if they didn't enter on a tourist visa and they decide to leave, the DR will be more than happy to waive the overstay fee and let them leave for free.

    I disagree, and you are comparing a US residency visa to a Dominican residency visa, not a visitor/tourist visa, right?

    While the US residency visa is harder to get and the interview is longer and more complicated, when approved you are good for 10 years!. None of these idiotic annual renewals and permanent residency visas that are really just also temporary visas.

    You need to spend 10 years here as a resident going through 5 temporary renewals, several "permanent" renewals as well as medical exams before you get a 10 year residency visa like you are issued in the US right off the bat.

    I am not giving advise to anyone, simply stating my experience living here 11 years.

    He says ' visitor' in his post

    I have been scrutinized...

    Tried crossing to the US....
    Declared the goods in my car as on their way to be shipped to the the DR.
    Had my plane ticket to POP....

    Refused entry.... the war dressed Border Agent didn't believe me.
    Suspected I was sneaking across the border to the promised land.

    I said...
    Look up my turned in Green Card, my 3 five terms of E-2 visas.... I left the USA voluntarily and have no desire to return.

    Him ...
    Keep talking like that and I'll confiscate your NEXUS card.

    Combat boots, bulletproof vest... at the Buffalo bridge 

    What an attitude....
    But they are the wrong guys to cross...
    When they interpret the situation, they have no superior.
    It's their call.... solely 

    To challenge, you need to go to Federal Court.
    My immigration lawyer told me that.

    The D.R. is a sovereign nation and can make their rules as they like. Most ex pats spend $$, support themselves and here (some more than others) while Haitians come here looking for work (they are tremendously hard workers) in some cases driving down wages for Dominicans (many lazy workers).
    Windeguy, I don't mean to offend you but you sound like a snowflake looking for life to be fair, it isn't in many cases but the strong rise to the top and overcome.

    If you mean entering and exciting without a problem I left and paid my overstay a week and a half ago and the agent couldn't have been nicer and said nothing about getting residency.
    Regarding the claim paid by Univeral Ins. it was either the end of last administration or beginning of Danilo I don't remember.

    Recently, they have become more diligent... more aware.
    The exit fee is one part...no change there - but overstaying carries other risks...
    as mentioned to you earlier by Windy.

    Not quite the cakewalk it once was.

    They want compliance for chronic visitors....it seems

    What about the op's original post now you need a copy of fbi report every time you renew your residence?
    You are already a resident. Bit late for that i would think.
