    Default Time To Open New Biometric Thread Since The Last Has Been Magically Closed...

    Foreigners in the Dominican Republic

    Interior and Police Minister Franklyn Almeyda has told Listin Diario that a nationwide foreigner registration program would be implemented starting in the first quarter of next year. Foreigners will be issued biometric identity documents. He said the registration program could take a year. He said the plan also involves carrying out a census to determine the number of foreigners living in the DR. This would run parallel to the implementation of biometric ID cards for Dominicans. He said this plan would define who is legally in transit, who is here illegally, and who is a permanent resident. He said his department contracted Gallup to poll Dominicans on the issue of regularizing the status of foreigners in the DR.


    The Central Electoral Board (JCE) is the institution responsible for issuing the cards after a person's legal status has been determined by the Department of Migration.

    The coming Biometric ID comes in part from the Real ID In The U.S. Here is the Governor of Montana and his thoughts on why this ID should be rejected. A solution looking for a problem. It is interesting how the media in DR is rather silent on the biometric ID's implementation. That is no mistake. I am amazed at how few Dominicans even know about its commencement in 2009.
