Hola, My husband and I are working through the process of applying for temporary residency. Apparently, one of the "newer" requirements is a residency visa card. Does anyone know how to access the info needed to get that? We did not need any sort of visa when we arrived last September.
Thanks.

When you say you’re working on it, what have you done, do you have a lawyer? You’ll get the card when you’ve completed the process.

Sorry to say, when you arrive on a 30 day tourist visa, and overstay, you do not earn any immigration status in the DR. The place to begin the process is the Dominican Consulate closest to your home, back home, wherever that may be. Good luck!

You start at the Dominican Embassy in your home country to start the process and get the proper visa in your passport to start residency.
Talk directly to them.

What kind of residency do you qualify for?

What the OP is talking about is the Residence Visa (RS) which they will get in their home country to start the process.

Many posters don't seem to know the difference between a tourist visa and a tourist card. A residency visa will really have them confused.

I wonder where jrcamu lives because there are not so many Dominican Embassies that issue the Residence Visa . The annoying thing is that on some of the Government websites they say various consulates can issue a visa but they actually do not even have a stamp to put into the passport .

A friend of mine got his residency visa at the Dominican consulate in Miami.
I was able to get mine from the Toronto Consulate by sending my passport via FedEx and then flying to and back Puerto Rico to activate it. Took quite a bit of time waiting and Fedex cost.

Still, cheaper than going back to Canada. My friend had to get a medical, local police report, and fingerprints done. How were you able to get those done w/o going back?

Those I got before leaving. Although you cansubmit fingerprints taken on FBI cards to various third parties in Canada to submit to the RCMP. And then as far as medical, I would ask the consulate if a notarized note from a DR doctor would be accepted.
