I had asked what current processing time is, so thought I would post my timeliness.

June 2nd - submitted and in evaluation

June 16th, - in process

June 17th, - approved. Appointment on June 29th.

I selected to pay at immigration instead of online. Appointment was created instantly.

You paid at Migracion in Santo Domingo, or in one of the "substations"? If that's an option for those of us in Puerto Plata or other places, that's great!

Renewed my temporary residency yesterday. Took about 50 minutes to get through with the fotos and finger print scan and then I sat there for two hours waiting for the residency card, so 2:50 total at DGM. After about an hour and forty five minutes when there wasn't many of us left to get the card, they finally put another gal at one of the windows to call names and hand out the cards. Caught a break at JCE and had my cedula in less than 15 minutes.

From what I could see, they're either not giving afternoon appointments, or everyone is showing up early and being let in. I saw very few people coming in after about 11am. The place was packed when I got there(every other seat occupied for distancing). The only documents were the payment receipt and one copy each of my passport, cedula, and residency card - same as last year.

I just received an email reaffirming my appointment but it says locality is puerto plata. Nothing is being done in puerto plata is there. I still go to Santo domingo right?

You meant 4 days ago in Santo Domingo's main Migracion office on the Malecon, correct?

Did you notice a lot of Chinese people there getting residency?

Yes, DGM in Santo Domingo. Unfortunately, that's still the only place you can renew your residency and get a new cedula.

I did see some Chinese there, but I wouldn't say many.
