just signed up - was thinking of visiting/staying long term in DR before the pandemic hit, so now hope to do so. Hope to get some info on visiting, possibly working and staying for about 1 year.

Have you decided where you might be settling? That may bring some different answers as this country is so diverse. Knowing a little about your needs and desires might also illicit a more focused answer.

yes, planning on Santo Domingo, hoping to teach English at a private school or two there, possibly freelance if that can be done. How likely is that to work out?

Do you have a teacher's education/experience?

In order to legally work, you have to have residency or a special work visa. For one year, residency won't make any sense.

Getting a work visa? Perhaps a school would sponsor you for the meager amounts they would pay.

Working online teaching English to Chinese is something I understand a number of people do.
