So it's OK to do the crime, but not the time when caught:surprisedNow, any tips on how to avoid paying the MASSIVE exit fee when you are here for a while and then leave to go abroad? We would love to get our residency or Cedula, but I understand we would need to go back to Canada and apply from there.
LOL, I had a similar experience, but when back in Canada I wanted to renew my PP, the said it was too damaged and had to fill out form 'a', 'b', 'c', and another one just for good measure. Came back here and went to POP and got my PP in 14 days....real easy, as ex canuck says one of the easiest things you can do in the DR (govt related that is)I renewed mine a few months ago. The process was the same as in Canada. Pay $100.00 fill out 1 or 2 papers, get a "professional" doctor or lawyer, etc to sign off and say they know your for 2 years. mine was done in 14 days. Very easy, no problems. One of the most easiest things I have had done here in the DR. Actually easier, because I had the pictures taken here and sent them to my mom in Canada and they refused them, but the same pictures were no problem for the Canadian consuate here.
