    Default DR exit Tax question

    We live in the DR and the last time we came into the country was
    Jan 8, 2013. We let our RESIDENCIA expire, not worth the cost. It
    expired March, 4, 2013.

    My question, the next time we leave the country do we pay the
    exit tax based on our last arrival date(passport) or the date our
    RESIDENCIA expired? thanks Phil

    Passport entry stamp is all that they will see at immigration.

    It's the same for either date!
    3-9 months is RD1000 Pesos, but play dumb that you are a resident as suggested, and have Pesos on hand JIC.

    I returned home on June 3rd after being in country for 32 days and I was charged 800 pesos. I thought my original visa was good for 60 days?

    That happened to me a couple of years ago - I had no idea that my residencia had expired. I was convinced it had another year to go. When leaving the country, the immigration official noticed it and said 'be sure to renew when you get back.' When I returned to the DR the official who checked it didn't even notice that it had expired.

    We had our 1,000 pesos in hand along with our residence card as we left emigration in POP. Three people looked at it and decided we owned 1,000 pesos each. They kept our cards and provided us a copy. Can't blame a guy for trying.

    Clever and only in the DR would someone dare to do so.

    I over stayed a year in Jamaica. Of course they said that I would have to go to jail. "fine I love it here" Ok than you have to pay a fine! Sorry have no money. Rass go than. Byeee
