Direccion General de Migracion has issued an order which will allow those Venezuelans who entered the D.R. on a tourist card or a visa, between 2014 to March 2020, to extend their stay legally for sixty days. It will also allow them to regularize the status of their children.

Once they have obtained their extension, they will also be able to apply for a category change as students or as temporary workers. . They will also be able to use expired passports.

Why is this same opportunity not afforded to our Canadian, or UK guests?
Are they not worthy themselves?
One has to wonder. :unsure:

Probably because it was open to everyone in the past, before the influx of Venezuelans fleeing their country.

But they seem to be the most in violation of the residency laws, why would they not want to legalize themselves?

History of Venezuelan help for the DR and Dominicans.

I just see a massive pattern of Canadian nationals who desire to flaunt the immigration laws of the RD, but it is not quite the same in reverse. Why is this?
Perhaps windeguy IS on to something regarding those illegal immigrant peoples he sees in Cabarate every morning.

My posting was meant to be tongue in cheek Sr. Saunders, tongue in cheek. I would hate for the entire Canadian community within to take up arms against me. After all, it is not as if I have DGM on speed dial, nor possess some sort of silly vendetta against my neighbors.
I could really care less about the paperwork of others, as long as they are contributing to the local economy, and are not criminals on the run, or participating in such activity here.

Unfortunately some of my fellow Canadians have been fugitives from the law. The long arm eventually catches up.

I believe there have been more high profile Canadian fraudsters, and Italiano mafiosos caught within as opposed to other nationalities, but alas, that is for another thread line.
