    Default Cédula Number

    At a recent appointment at my local Dominican consulate, the woman assisting me seemed to be able to discern from the fact that my cédula number starts with the number 4 that I am a naturalized citizen who was previously a foreigner with a residency permit.

    Do native-born Dominicans really receive different cédula numbers that distinguish them from naturalized citizens?

    You should provide at least the first 3 digits of your cedula to know, because here in San Pedro Dominicans has cedulas starting with 402-

    It's no different than your social insurance number. The first 3 numbers are usually associated with the state or province you were born in.
