If the father is a foreigner and the mother is a Dominican, and the child is born in DR, can the father get the citizenship based on the child? Thanks.

Im sure after being an Adult can ask at least first for a legal residence then do next step wich is citizenship. Most common way is by marriage with a Dominican.

Question about Dominican residency when marrying a Dominican:
when you marry here, do you have to travel back to your home country to apply for it?
Tx and a Happy New Year!

Yes. Current rules stipulate residency requires that you first to apply at an Embassy or Consulate in your home country for a residency visa. Then you come to the DR and submit your formal application.

To get DR citizenship, you must first get residency regardless of marriage status to a national or any children born here.

It wasn't always this way but it is now.
