    Can it be done with a temp residency?

    Temporary residency is a form of residency, so yes.

    (Remember that all residency in the DR is really temporary, as in it having to be renewed periodically.)

    I have another question, my boyfriend was born in Santo Domingo but was raised in the US since 5. Would it be easier for him to obtain residency or citizenship or is he still classified as a citizen since he was born there. Just thinking it may be easier to start the business under his name.

    less/no hassle.... fast startup.....

    He is a citizen.... may physically need a passport but cannot be denied it ---IMO

    He's a citizen, just needs to present his birth certificate to get a cedula. I'd personally not put a business in anyone else's name, unless legally married, but that's your decision, of course.

    Another silly question, how does one get a cedula?
