I have been here under a couple of different names for over 12 years whose id/passwords I forget but since I am going today to our lovely Capitol today to get my Change of immigration status to Permanent Resident (RD-1)"aka DEFINITIVE RESIDENCE (RD-1) an extension of the residence permit, for an additional ten (10) years". For example after receiving an email from DGM saying that my cita is to be done in Santiago. I have been assured that it must be done in Santo Domingo and that cedulas of foreigners can be done in Santiago. Ï will let you know tomorrow what the real facts are. And maybe some facts about operations and stays (14 days x 2) in HOMS like HOMS will accept US credit cards with a most excellent rate and menus.
