    Arrived a few hours ago, piece of cake!

    In Santiago they had temperature machines just as you exited the plane. There was a nurse/doctor that was monitoring the screen. They didn't have any social distancing. Just markings on the ground and chairs of where to stand.. but no one obeyed.. Glad to be back here too

    Im a plumber looking to retired soon in DR

    I am in need of a good plumber to come fix the water in my house. I bought a diaphragm (I think this is what it's called, blue tank that is supposed to keep constant pressure), and from my limited googling on how to install it, looks like they installed it on the wrong side of the water...

    DR is indeed opened for incoming tourists

    Were you able to get a taxi, or maybe better to ask if the roads were open? Reason I ask is I was just told by my brother in law in the DR they would have to pick us up at 5am. We arrive tonight at 2am in Santiago. He said something about not being allowed on the roads due to something with...

    last I checked with them they did, but they are always bundled with a telecom company and don't think that would work in the DR. could be wrong.. I had the same issue with Claro at first, it was so slow it was unusable.. Then tried Altice, which was great until I hit the 100GB download cap...

    Entry with Perm Residency during National Emergency

    This is interesting, the lawyer I'm working with from Guzman Ariza told me 1 year "temporary".. Seems like there is always a different answer based on who you ask, even from lawyers/consulates..

    When will DR open for International travel??????

    Yeah, at this point I understand the process :) Personally my residency is based on marriage, and understand how you have to go through the consulate to get the initial visa, and then "complete" the process in the DR..
