    Default Renewing My Residency; Have Questions

    I'm sure the answers are in the archives but I am too lazy to do an exhaustive research, also the search engine is not that refined.

    I have had residency for more than 25 years so don't need a physical.

    Questions:

    1. My expiration date is in mid-September. Can I renew the end of this month or in early August? Is there a rule on when you can renew?

    2. Can you still renew in Santiago, or at least begin the process there? If so:

    a. Does anyone have the phone number of the office in Santiago?

    b. It has been 4 years since I was there, but as I recall it was on the same busy street as the Caribe Tours bus terminal, but on the opposite side of the street. I recall crossing that street, turning left, and walking back toward the city. A couple of blocks later the office was on the second floor of a building on the street corner. Is that where the Santiago office is today?

    Thanks, hopefully someone will know the number. I had it 4 years ago, but can't find it now.

    I expect because of the length of time you were a resident you can renew in Santiago. Those of us that still needed a medical exam had to go to Santo Domingo. When I called the office in Santiago they told me they could tell me nothing about the details on the telephone. I had to go into the office which is near the second Caribe Tours bus stop in Santiago.

    Thanks, Malko. Am I correct in understanding that 809-508-2555, ext 209 rings the migracion office in Santiago?

    In your case Ken, submit the paper work in Santiago, pick up your new card in Santiago. One problem now is the new cedula, you must get the new cedula AFTER you renew your current residency since you have less then 3 months before renewal of the Residency card. The new cedula card can NOT be done in Santiago. Current wait time in line at the JCE in S.D. was roughly 2 hours on Thursday, July 17th, 2014.

    Interesting is that others have reported the new cedula would have the same expiration date as your residency card, yet mine was dated July 17th and same year as my residency card which expires on July 10th. If I had known that, I would have left more time between the residency card and the cedular card.

    The new cedula card is FREE, if you don't wait too long to get it, there is a time limit on getting it.

    You will be under the old system and just need to fill out the form as before, you will need your residency card and passport to submit the form. You can go there and do it all in a short time. The person in charge of accepting the papers in migracion in Santiago is "Gracie". Very nice person to work with.

    Thanks, malko. If she is the same person that seemed to be head of the office about 4 years ago, she is very helpful.

    I do not know who Elsa Rodriguez is.
