    On the plane earlier this week , I sat beside a girl coming down to see her her boyfriend and she asked about residency/marriage/citizenship.

    Her case is interesting.... Cdn resident but has a Trinidad/Tobago passport...born there.

    The question is --- will another Caribbean passport allow entry and work in in the DR?
    Like some sort of Caribbean Union arrangement?

    I have never heard that question before and thought somebody might know.

    I suggested she call her Embassy/Consulate

    As far as I know there are no blanket restrictions on foreigners applying for residency based solely on country of citizenship - the residency process is the same.

    1) Determine which residency program one qualifies for.
    2) Apply for residency visa at DR embassy in your country of current residence.
    3) Submit required paperwork to DGM in Santo Domingo.

    Both T&T and DR are members of CARICOM, but DR is only observer. Anyway this org. is only for commercial trades. As Cdn Gringo said, for residency same rules apply.

    If you are married to a Dominicana and have built a house there - do you have to apply for residency in the USA before applying for citizenship in the DR? Can you just go directly to the authorities in the DR?

    Yes and you have to have held residency for 2 years and it needs a year to run before you can apply for citizenship.

    Thanks, Matilda... Any idea how long it takes after they have residency for 2 years - from that point on - to get citizenship?

    The DR changes rules on Residency and Citizenship as often as you change your underwear.
