Has any DR1 community member been recently through the process of applying for a US passport for a first time at the US Consulate in Santo Domingo. Which forms were used? How much can be done online, how many visits are necessary to the US Consulate? Any tips to expedite this? Could you give insights and details of the experience? I read on the Internet a child under 16 will only be given a 5-year passport (and more paperwork needed), while a 16+ child will be given a 10-year passport. Thanks for sharing any recent (past two years).
