    If an FBI report is sufficient for citizenship, then getting the finger printing done to request that background check is supposed to be done by an authorized finger print technician. The US Embassy in the DR does not perform this service. Another thing that would have to be done in the USA.

    Again, they only send this via the US postal service using regular mail and it takes from 14 to 16 weeks and there may be a situation where there is no information on file at the FBI.

    By the time you get an FBI report, the DR would probably consider it too old to use.

    I took my birth certificate and whatever else to the Dom Embassy.... they did it all...
    done in a second....

    Had it done 1st at the Cdn Embassy in POP which the DR Consulate threw out fast.

    The sponsor is the hard part for citizenship-
    RD born
    Bank Account of 100,000 pesos
    Car in one name(not joint) w/ no loan

    My lawyer is good - Guzman trained , now independent

    Prints and clean record done w/ RCMP... Cdn FBI equivalent
    Fast , easy cheap

    You don't need a sponsor if you are married to a Dominican as Windeguy is.

    Matidlda:

    Thank you for the link to the on-line site for the Certificación de no antecedentes penales.

    Now I do not have to spend 3 hours in line in the hot sun with 200 people in front of me.

    Went to Santo Domingo today to complete the process. Got there at 9 and it was already jam-packed full. Completed the whole process by 2:30pm and was very relieved to get the heck out of there. Definitiva is good for 10 (ten) years. Yay! Card is purple, total cost was 20k pesos + 1000 for VIP. Only had to present 1 set of documents.

    Definitiva clock starts ticking at the 1st permanent residency, not temporary.

    My initial application was January 2008 but they only recognize me from 2010. 
    No definitiva for me yet

    Was 2010 the date of your permanent residency ?

    Thanks for the great post. I think I will switch from Permanente to Definitiva the next time I renew 2021.

    Were you able to renew your cedula where you live or did you have to do that in Santo Domingo?
