    a question: how would a domincan go about getting a visa to travel to india?
    Via Panama and Entering Panama are two different things. She could not leave the airport while in transit. My post is accurate, Domincans need a Visa to ENTER Panama.

    Bermuda has changed. You need two Visas. You need a US Transit Visa (No direct flights to Bermuda) and then apply for a Bermuda Visa for a Dominican to visit Bermuda.

    US Transit Visa? Pretty sure they no longer exist.

    "A transit visa, also known as C-1 visa, is used when a citizen of a foreign country will travel in immediate and continuous transit through the United States (U.S.) in route to a foreign destination. In order to qualify for a transit visa, it is required to present a valid permission or visa to enter the country of destination upon departure from the U.S."

    To travel through a US airport you need a US Visa now. Just as hard to get as always. Staying in the US or passing through literally makes no difference now.

    It makes sense that a "transit" visa is just as hard to get as a visitor's visa for the US. Otherwise people with the motive of staying in the US illegally would just apply for the easier to get transit visas and exit the airport in the US. Do any Dominicans have personal experience trying to get transit visas compared to visitor's visas for the US?

    Panama airport is really nice for Duty Free shopping as you mentioned. I buy at least a case of liquor while changing planes there. In Panama the price is right and you can carry it with you right out of the store, unlike in the US where you have to get it when you board the plane. There are tons of stores selling everything and anything there.

    When I came through Miami on Monday, the transit lounge was in the same location as it was the other times I passed through. It is much more secure than the previous lounge, and it barely marked. As you exit the immigration lines but before proceeding to customs, the transit lounge is located to the right.

    As to how one secures a transit visa: it does not surprise me that it would be as difficult as securing a B1/B2 Visitor's Visa. Unless someone is covered by the laws governing the maritime industry or one is philosophically opposed to entering the United States, it would probably be better to seek a visitor visa.

    Update. Both Argentina and Peru now require visa for Dominicans. I am thinking soon the dominicans that travel to hook, deal or overstay visas will screw it up for the rest. My GF has been to argentina 4 times. Has gotten visas for mexico, panama, jamaica and 3 times for Brasil. Argentina gave her a hard enough time that she said forget it and stayed in Brasil while i went to BA.
