I came in april 29, wednesday, plan on leaving may 29 friday. Want to be sure how they count days at the airport and if the law is over 30 days, or 30 days and over.

People, how many times do we have to go over this?

Calendar days are only applicable when Mars is aligned with Venus during the second Harvest Moon every THIRD leap year assuming it doesn't coincide with a lunar eclipse.

Get it together already.

I've come to the conclusion that it's up to the random person who you get in immigration.

hard to answer the new system's quirks/rules.

when added manually - I have heard of people correcting the count for February (28 days) when the agent went Feb 15 to Mar 15 , for example.

New system might count differently

breaking ground here.....trail blazing

my guess is that its fully automated now..... no more sneaking through a la CCCCCCologne.
The computer wants its money !!!

You may be right, I did get a computerized receipt that had my full name and passport # on it - I'm going to try to find it and see if it has the dates printed.

To be continued.....

OMG , another one of these threads.

Where is Cdn_G when you need him, he is slacking off, I see Deputy Dog is on the case.

Visa is good for 30 days, so you need to be out of immigration by the stroke of midnight on day 30 or PAY up, RD2,500 or RD4,000, depending on the lunar cycle.

I'm not qualified to hold classes on how to count to 31. I can't even do it by getting completely undressed.

As my overpriced publicity specialist has already pointed out, I don't leave. If I did, or when I do, the overstay fines aren't applicable to me.

The over stay fine is the best system in the world. People stop bitching about it. I am broke as hell but will not bitch about $55/$100 to stay in the DR.

i wasnt concerned about the fee amount but I figured that with the new law they are creating a new database of prior overstayers. I plan on entering this country 3x a year and dont want to get on some fool list when i try to reenter in August. Will change my ticket to may 28 as I dont know how they count to 30 here.
