    Default New cédulas: A good experience

    Folks I just came back from Sto Dgo--look at the calendar, it's a Saturday!!
    Yes, you folks out there that have been waiting to get your new cédulas, here is the indside scoop; THE PLACE ON LUPERÓN IS OPEN ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS UNTIL 4:00!!! WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE.

    I kid you not. You can change your marital status, residence, profession, anything on the ID card...and it's all free and no hassle.

    The place, as you should know is known to taxis (Apolo for example) a "Extrangería" or Johnson's across the street from Shell on Luperon..(In Spanish of course..)

    Remember as of Next January 2015, the old cedula will be worthless in any formal transaction..

    We almost met...
    We were there yesterday late morning, I was the only one!
    Great service (all done in 25 min.).

    The 'encargada' was very friendly and even offered us to call a taxi (Apolo).

    Anyone interested in renewing...we are putting together a shuttle service to go to/from Santo Domingo and I am checking out interest from those of you on DR1. We probably need at least 5 people. PM me if interested. It would be within the next 10 days. I am only looking for interest now; when the date is confirmed, then we'd need commitment. Thx.

    My wife and I are here for 6 mths gone for 6. Our current cedulas expire in February. From your experience do we renew asap or can we wait until the expirey date. Unfortunately most things on the DR 1 forum get side tracked and getting a reasonable response is like herding cats. We renewed our residencies and drivers licenses this year but not the cedulas. Please share what you know.
    Thanks

    If you renew your 'cedula' now it will expire the same date as your 'residencia'.
    Until 10th, January renewal is free.

    Yesterday they told me that it is not yet known whether there will be a charge after that date.

    So, it is up to you to decide; there is no obligation to exchange the 'cedula' now.

    So if I renew now will the expirey date be Feb 2015 or will they renew it to 2018 like my residency. I fully expect there will be a fee to go to 2018 and that is fine but I really dont want to go to SD and do the renewal if it expires in 2015 like my current one.
    The on going moving target here is challenging at best but for gods sake would thes clowns make a rule and live by it.
