    In order to obtain a Dominican passport you need to be a Dominican citizen, not just a resident. A different process. If your cedula says "no vota" on it you are not eligable for a passport.

    Wouldn't you have to give up your Canadian passport then? Sorry for asking but what benefits would a Dominican passport give you?

    You dont have to give up the Canadian passport. Thats another one of those USA requests I believe.

    You can have dual US/RD passports as well as dual Canadian/RD.

    Not true about having to give up a USA passport. It is very hard to give up US citizenship and requires pro active steps on a US citizens part to do that

    It's more a European thing to request give up your original nationality if you acquire another one. I know Holland does require it, unless you are married to a Dominican.

    Not so complicated,
    They, the U. S. embassy / state dept. has a simple form, fill it out turn it in and you are out..........

    Probably created in response to the tantrums Americans seem to throw when they do no get the service or results they expect from the US counsel / embassy / state dept.

    They are and always be my heros,

    G'luck,

    I have duel citizenship and I was born in a European country so I guess not all of them.

    Anyway to answer the OP yes as a Canadian you can have duel citizenship but as someone mentioned above you need to become a Dominican citizen to aquire a Dominican passport.
