    Are you on the North Coast? There are many Swiss expats in the Sosua/Cabarete area who would know. If no one responds to your question call the Swiss Embassy in Santo Domingo.

    try a large cambio, like rusa. they have various locations and may gather smaller quantities of other money they change, aside from dollars/euros before they change elsewhere. don't ask whether they have it in a specific shop but rather whether they can check their other locations and main office. you can also inquire with banco popular. again, don't ask what they have in a specific branch but ask if they can look for it for you.

    other than that, banco central.

    The next best thing Euro.
    The swiss franc is not important enough to merit an account in the DR.

    Are you trying to get CHF wired to a Dominican bank account or find hard currency in country?
    To the best of my knowledge, only the latter is possible.

    you can transfer the money in any currency you want but you can only pick it up here in the currency available. you may be able to withdraw this money in dollars but it will still cost you all the fees applicable.

    The receiving bank is going to charge the OP to convert currency twice:
    CHF > USD > DOP

    The OP wants one Fx transaction, CHF > DOP, which is tricky, but possible.
