    Default Wanting infor on spending 6 months in Puerto Plata Nov-April

    Hello everyone, New person here Anyway my husband and I are frequent travelers to Puerto Plata and are looking into spending our "winter" months down there (Nov~April) Now I think we need a different "visa" when we do this.......if someone knows please let me know. We are Canadian and want to start doing this by next year. We are wanting to Rent but would like any information that anyone has to share with us. Anything would be appreciated

    Hello.
    It’s mainly, tourist-visa and overstay, being illegal en pay when you return to your country. Or apply for residency.

    Just come and pay the tourist visa when you arrive. This is good for a month. When you leave, you pay the "fine" for overstaying. If you are thinking of doing this on an annual basis you can think about getting official Residency, but many people don't.

    I know that we can get a "tourist card" (up here in Canada) and that is for 30 days only. then they want us to go get an extension 120 days (supposedly somewhere at the Canadian Consulate in Puerto Plata....but we have to do that twice in order to get another 120 days. This seems stupid to me. What is the "FINE" for overstaying? And will this effect us next time we want to go? As for Official Residency, what does this entail? and really is it worth it?
    thanks much
