    Default Renew 5 year expired residency

    I have been out of the DR for over 5 years. My permanent resident card expired just about the time I decided to leave. Any chances it could be renewed or the 6 month rule will work against me?

    Thanks

    How does permanent expire? People ask why some of us don't get residency, but is it possible to be any more confusing than it is? What does permanent mean if it also or alternatively means it expires in 5 years.

    He did not have a 5 year residency card, his residency card expired 5 years ago.

    I have had my permanent residency here since 1995, and have often wondered about this bitching here on the board about (Americans) having to renew our residency here in the DR. Where as the USA has the same policy on aliens residing in the US, only real difference is the cost and the amount of time the residency is good for. Now with the 10 year residency here even that is equal.

    https://greencardinusa.com/green-card-renewal-fee-cost/

    The status of a permanent resident, means, the possession of a GC is not permanent. Just like the driver’s license, the green card needs to be updated from time to time. As a rule, green cards are a valid term for 10 years. Therefore, if you still have a green card with no expiration date on the front, you must immediately replace it in order to have a valid document confirming your immigration status in the US. Of course, if you have not applied for a green card replacement and not paying a consular fee, you will not be fined and will not lose permanent resident status.

    As an alien, you may need going through Green Card renewal process if you, for example, lost it or someone had stolen it from you, or you just already passed a 10-year period of holding your card. That means your Green Card is expired and you need to apply for a new one as a renewed.

    Did you apply on your own or hire someone ?
    What where the costs, length of time, another medical needed, and how many trips to the Capital ?

    Why did you bother? I thought you were happy to be hear illegally and get away with it as you posted several times by advising others not to bother with residency. What changed that attitude?

    My current permanent residency card expires in 2023. You just have to accept that fact that Permanent is the name they use at Migracion for this type of residency which comes after Temporary residency. When you have Permanent residency, you are entitled to own a firearm and possibly some other privileges not provided to Temporary residency card holders.

    The only permanent type of "residency" is achieved through naturalization as in citizenship.
    This is confusing even in the USA where a legal permanent residency card also needs to be renewed.
