    The law changed a few months ago. Prices will depend on a lot of factors. Many that do not know how the D.R. system works, find this type of procedure to be very long and complicated. Needing more documents, mostly from your home country, and several trips to S.D. resulting in a frustrating and more then needed expenses. (travel, hotels, etc.)

    I suggest that you get information and advise from an Dominican expert in this area. As I have recommended and have had experience with:

    Jordi in S.D. Immigration lawyer. 809-350-0098 Speaks english OK.

    (Sorry I cann't find his card, but this is in my D.R. contact list.)

    Approx US $600, US $1,100, US $1,250 or up to US $2,000. Depends if you do it yourself &/or who you choose as the lawyer. Do a search on 'Residencia', or 'Residency Costs' & all will be revealed!

    What area are you living in - North Coast as I recall?? Have a charming young lady lawyer in Santiago who charges about US $1,200 as I recall. ~ Grahame.

    Please keep doctors, lawyers and mechanics as far away as posible, in that order, if possible!

    Go to: DIRECCION GENERAL DE MIGRACION - [D. G. M.] for all your answers and stop being ripped off by... a guy walks into a bar and says...

    Yes she is charming but the last foreigner she organised residency for appears to have left the country leaving her with 50% of the bill unpaid so while I know she does a good job, she might start asking the next applicants if they intend staying..................

    So, if you pay the $1200 (give or take a few hundred) for a lawyer to "handle" this for you, are the multiple trips to SD, waiting in line, etc. still required?
