    Annual Property Taxes

    I've owned a piece of land in the hills of Coson close to Las Terrenas for 20 years. I never had to pay any property taxes for it.

    Overstay fee after receiving tourist visa extension?

    I have successfully applied for an extension of my tourist visa for up to 4 months. Will I still have to pay the overstay fee at the airport upon leaving the country?

    Amnesty Law...Until Mid-January

    I own a piece of land in LT (with no construction yet) and I am thinking of doing this myself. At first glance it looks like a really good deal.

    Tourism collapses 87% in August

    Earlier in this thread someone mentioned that tourism accounts for 8-10% of GDP in DR. Could someone explain what that means? Does it only account for the "direct" payment of goods and services by the tourists, or does it also include e.g. the bartender of the AI-hotel who uses his salary to pay...
