    OK, Let's "See the DR..."

    So now we know, from the data in the link that you provided . . .

    The Dominican Republic's B1/B2 visa overstay percentage is almost TRIPLE the average of ALL countries throughout the entire world visiting the United States in 2018.

    Overall average - 1.22% -- Dominican Republic 3.18%

    Of ALL Latin American Countries with the exception of Haiti and Venezuela (for obvious reasons), the Dominican Republic has the HIGHEST percentage of overstays.

    3.18% - 14,641 Dominican overstays.

    The next closest Latin American country by percentage is Cuba

    2.65% - 1,868 Cuban overstays.

    And while the majority of ALL countries percentage of overstays declined year over year from 2017 to 2018, the number and percentage of Dominican overstays INCREASED.

    Dominican Rep. - 11,349 - 2.88% - 2017
    Dominican Rep. - 14,641 - 3.18% - 2018


    3,292 More Dominicans overstayed their B1/B2 visas in 2018 than in 2017 even though FEWER visas were issued.

    And do you know how they did it PICHARDO . . .

    Actually you do . . .

    OVERSTAYS
    I see you still don’t read all of it, but just what you deem good for your stance!

    The high rate of DR B1/B2 overstays are due to the adjustment of status once they land in the USA. The high number can be found in the reports of DHS with their pertaining sources.

    Many Dominicans who married US citizens and LPRs, prefer to get first to the USA and file for their adjustment of status in the country, not wait at home for an interview.

    This also follows family that seek to adjust their status once they arrived to the USA under the B1/B2 category.
    Again, the data is there if you care to seek for it before you expose your ignorance on the matter as a de facto support to your opinion.

    The data is on the DHS reports on adjustment of status per country, per admissions, per type.

    Dominican Republic gets issued a very high rate of green cards compared to other countries.
    Same for tourist visas, same for multiple years visas. Facts.
    One Dominican at a time please!

    So what are you saying here.........they committed Visa fraud to enter the US as they had no intentions of coming for a visit.......which is the reason one is given a tourist visa in the first place.

    That, if true, is a classic example of likely why the precipitous fall off in tourist visas granted in the DR.

    Dominican Republic gets issued a very high rate of green cards compared to other countries.
    Certainly not higher than Mexico, or Cuba or China or India, Think chain migration........which is on the decline for many countries......including the DR.

    Same for tourist visas, same for multiple years visas. Facts.
    You get a very high rate of tourist visas and multiple year visas?

    Yes, how about some facts....perhaps you could tell us how many people apply each day in Santo Domingo..........and how many are granted.....to support your "very high rate."

    I can only go by my observations. We have every year a lot of students get their residency, in fact we just had a mother and her two boys get their residency papers to go join the father in NY. Many of our teachers have received Visitors Visas, several of my wife's cousins have received their Visitors Visas and that is just in the past year or so. I only know of one teacher that has been refused.

    Pichardo, I suggest YOU read the links YOU POST before talking about "exposing ignorance".

    You posted seven links in this thread which are totally irrelevant to the OP, and unintelligible replies that are meaningless. The only link which is actually relevant is the last one.

    Here again is the link YOU POSTED.

    https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/fi...tay-report.pdf

    Now, I know most people on DR1 can't be bothered to read all 60 pages of the link, and most probably don't have the time. BUT WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE?

    You claim that "The high rate of DR B1/B2 overstays are due to the adjustment of status once they land in the USA.."

    If YOU would have read YOUR posted link you would have seen that the report CLEARLY states in the very beginning: SUMMARY, PAGE ii, PARAGRAPH SIX, that the overstay numbers and percentages given are SPECIFICALLY for overstays with "NO EVIDENCE OF AN EXTENSION TO THE PERIOD OF ADMISSION OR ADJUSTMENT TO ANOTHER IMMIGRATION STATUS."

    That is word for word from the SECOND page of the report.

    Below is the entire paragraph from YOUR provided link, for those who don't have time or can't be bothered to read the link.

    This report presents the overstay rates to provide a better understanding of those who overstay and remain in the United States beyond their authorized period of admission with no evidence of an extension to their period of admission or adjustment to another immigration status.

    So if you would have read just the first two pages of the report in the link YOU provided, you would have clearly seen that overstays based on "extension to period of admission" and "adjustment to another immigration status", ARE NOT INCLUDED!!! If they would have been included the rates would have been MUCH higher. Either way, Dominican overstays are almost TRIPLE the WORLD AVERAGE, and Dominicans are the NUMBER ONE abusers of their visa privileges to the United States among Latin America countries, PERIOD.

    And just to be clear, as playacaribe2 accurately stated, any Dominican who arrived in the United States on a B1/B2 visa with the intention of ultimately changing their status while visiting under the B1/B2 guidelines ARE COMMITTING VISA FRAUD. And guess where Dominicans rank on that matter???

    Pichardo, a word of advice. Obviously English isn't your first language, so if you are going to try and insult me in this thread, I would suggest you don't use phrases like "but just what you deem good for your stance!", The high number can be found in the reports of DHS with their pertaining sources. before you expose your ignorance on the matter as a de facto support to your opinion,

    Your attempted usage of those phrases are both contextually and grammatically incorrect. I'm sure you're trying to impress someone by using what you think is "intelligent language" in your insults, but it just shows you're trying too hard.

    It's bad enough that you post totally FALSE information and don't even read or research the links you provide, but when you try and insult somebody by attempting to use a language at a level that you CLEARLY HAVE NOT ATTAINED, you're only making yourself look that more foolish.

    Forget the insults, stick to the attempts at propaganda, as pathetic as they are.

    And yet another poster lacking knowledge of the matter exposing his ignorance on the very matter he seeks to disprove me...

    The DHS posts per year the exact number of visas by type issued to citizens of other countries, it also posts the rejection rate for visa applicants, also posts the exact number and type of immigrant visas issued to that country citizens in their consulate(s) there, posts the overstay numbers as per visa type, but also posts the adjustment of status numbers by type and category (adjustment of status refers to people that filed to change their visa type/residency status whilst in the USA) of their entry visa to the USA.

    Given that undocumented people in the USA have been made not to qualify for adjustment of status in the country, no matter if they married or else, but need to exit the USA and have their interview in their hone country, then proceeds to clear who are these people that are undergoing adjustment of status as legal visa holders filing and receiving a positive review for a tren card and residency in the USA (aka overstayers in their big numbers for the DR when you extrapolate the cases with adjustment of status (in the USA) and the immigrant visas issued at the USA consulate in SD with the complete number of immigrant visas issued and the B1/B2 plus overstays...


    Go ahead and search the data and if you want to do it easier create an excel sheet...

    Then come back here and let’s chat again on the matter, but by then without One side having ignorance of the facts....
    One Dominican at a time please!

    The DHS btw makes a note of stating that they don’t further clear if those overstayers are part of a category that carried out adjustment of status. They simply add the people that received a tourist visa by type and category and if they don’t have a departure record for the date stamped on the passport for stay, they consider them overstayers.

    Go ahead and read the notes....

    One Dominican at a time please!

    AE just stated the reason and the only reason. If you are an educated professional with a source of income, you can easily get a tourist visa. My sister does it all the time.
