    One thing more: Those writing about "fines" you have to pay leaving the country:
    Where do you have got this from?
    Can you please show me one "official" spanish sentence please where they use a "bad" word like this?

    I only read words like "tarifa", "pago", "tasa", "cargo"...

    I think this tells something, doesn`t it?

    Nice to have you enter the fray, todo

    the nomenclature has been well discussed here... and has proponents from all sides.

    Technically not a fine - a penalty....
    are fines penalties - and vice versa?

    Fee?
    keep going....

    one thing agreed on and defined by the DR1 lawyer is this -

    once the legal time limit is over
    you are illegal

    any way you cut it....
    A fee, a Fine, a Penalty...
    it's a payment for not adhering to the Tourist Card rule

    Don't even get started if it's a 'Card' or 'Visa".
    another lengthy topic...

    I am sorry for you to come across this thread and get confused by some fake news and dodgy posts. As your Spanish is pretty good from what you say and you have heard the words from the horse's mouth so to speak, don't pay any attention to the noise surrounding this issue. To be honest you confused the people at the other end of the phone by implying you know something they don't - Dominicans change tact to save face, didn't mean they know something else and didn't tell you. You insisted and they found a way out by saying "get a lawyer". Think about it, why do you get a lawyer, to do what... !? Why not tell you the solution or any prohibition etc... ! I bet if you insisted a bit more they would introduce you to their friend lawyer to start residency for you with some kickbacks and commissions... lol

    Carry on as usual and as recommended, until if and when the DR gov changes their laws for German visitors - note the agent asked you where you come from, important (so far they have not changed any laws for Germans), then they will let us know properly with plenty of time to adjust and adopt, and we will all comply with their new laws.

    Big change today in Santiago immigration!

    Now instead of all fingers they just took thumbprints.

    Or maybe the number of fingers is correlated to number of overstays and you are only allowed 10 overstays???

    Quien sabe? Ahora me voy a tomar un presidente, tan frío, y disfrutar la noche!

    If you overstay your 30 day tourist card, they take your thumbs.

    Why anyone is still insisting on wanting to live or spend their winters in this backwards, confusing, crooked, filthy, dangerous banana republic, filled with thieves, liars and garbage is beyond comprehension.

    Laws are ever changing and nothing is ever clear and concise. Ask an important question to three different government employees and you will get three different versions. Get to the end of a long process and you will be told that the rules have changed. Wait in line for 4 hours and than get into another line for another 4 hours just to get one document. All the while seeing employees chatting among themselves instead of serving the poor people that have been waiting in line for an eternity.

    Why? For the sun? Not worth it. There are better, cleaner, safer and more civilized countries to spend the winters and where the odds of not being seriously injured on a simple car ride to the grocery store are excellent.

    Spent a total of 8 winters in Punta Cana since 2008 and it was better before 2015. I was lucky to sell my property so that I don't ever have to step foot in that polluted Dominican soil again. My mental and physical well-being is more important than money.

    I mean really... Dominicans want to get the hell out of that third-world country and we want to go live there. Total nonsense.
    If you persist on spending time there, accept the bull**** and don't be surprised about not understanding what is really going on.

    2500 pesos I thought. So what kind of buck do you have?
