    Why scary? Surely every foreigner knows they need residency? If they choose not to get it, they have to put up with the penalties.

    1000US$ is a lot of money to some of the Gringos here...
    Plus, worst of all, pot residue stays in the body for 12 weeks!!

    if one has money for drugs then surely one can spare a thousand bucks for residencia.
    somehow i tend to think that those who do not apply for one either: a. are junkies, b. have AIDS or c. are criminals...

    It doesn't cost $1000 to do it yourself. I know when I move down I'll do it myself, with lots of help from my wife of course.

    Good luck with that Mr Bob.
    I would love to know how that works out for you.
    Does this mean that if the authorities are alerted about a Gringo with no residency, they might take action?
    This could get very interesting.

    I translated this article to english and it says that if you do NOT meet the qualifications for residency you will be repatriated

    Here is the english version....Thank God Mine is in the proceess just in case

    Illegal aliens are removed in the DR
    Written by: Diogenes For Tejada
    El Nacional
    LAS AMERICAS AIRPORT .- The General Director of Migration warned today that all foreigners living illegally in the country and do not satisfy the requirements to obtain a residence Dominican, will be repatriated.


    What determines who is living here illegally?

    When you overstay your tourist visa you pay a fine was what I have read.

    Have the laws changed or were they not inforced?
