    Cool Dom. Passport?

    There are better countries for getting a passport in Latin America. The D.R. is best for just residency cards.

    Right. No value. But a Swiss passport... Now we're talking!

    And the Dominican government is better of taking your money every two years.

    If you are the child of a Dominican national, and have a cedula, this is the final step in the "legalization" process. If you can get it, and it's cheap , why not? There are benefits to having dual citizenship, and for those who inherit it, it is worth getting, especially at a cost of a few hundred dollars, for the complete process.

    For non-Dominicans, the benefits might be minimal. I will say that having a DR passport allows you to travel to certain places with no visas, or cheaper visas. For example, it is easier getting in and out of Cuba, and a visitors visa to Brazil is much cheaper for a Dominican, than it is for an American. There are other examples of this with other countries. I also like the idea of not having to carry around a US passport everywhere. I'd much rather lose my Dominican passport, than my American passport any day.

    Is a US/UK passport beneficial? Yes. If you have one, great, but a second passport could do no harm.

    Interesting note. I phoned the Brazilian Embassy in Santo Domingo last week, inquiring about visa costs for a friend. For a US American citizen to get a Brazilian Tourist Visa, the cost is US$130 dollars! Compare that to US$20 dollars for a Dominican citizen.

    So, outwardly, having a Dominican passport seems of no value, but upon further review, there are certain benefits.

    Cool reply

    Thank you both for this information and I am waiting for an updated list of countries a Dom. citizen can travel to without needing a visa. I am sure someone who is knowledgeable can supply this.
