    It NEVER happened to anyone...............Just call any DR Embassy in any Country and ask if this can ever happen solely from overstays. They will laugh at you.................

    We have had residency for over 12 years now. The whole process has changed a lot since we started our original application. Whenever its time to renew we just look at it like its another adventure. Getting upset at the ever revolving process will just make your head explode.

    As previously mentioned, ask yourself if you really need or want it and go from there. I am not sure which way I would go if I had to deal with the current regulations in place.

    Good luck with whatever you decide.

    So what means DGM?

    I’m guessing “Departmental General Migration”? (And I believe there is a separate Department for “Colonels” who want to migrate, too?) (;-)
