"But thanks for trying" is a non-starter amigo. Don't patronize me. And your constant put off to all the members that answer is --------No, it does not. Those are not tourist cards. I asked you about tourist cards that had the potential to allow people to work. So the answer, again, is no. I am not parsing anything. These are VERY different things. And the people I am talking about have none of them. But thanks for trying.
The only thing I can infer from those special permits is that someone would need such a permit (or legal residency in the DR) to play music legally for money in the DR.
I await the legal teams response to my interpretation and to my legal question.
If, you don't know the answer to your prescious question then sit there on your axix and wait for the "legal team" to satisfy YOU.
