Yes. Correct. ThanksThen by all means talk to the closest DR Embassy in the US and start the procedure. You will need documents from the US all translated with an Apostille, etc... A special entry visa is needed from the DR embassy and then you complete the process in the DR once you have all the required paperwork from the US, which I am assuming is your home country and passport. It sounds like you will be in the DR more than the US, so the issue of where you really live would be apparent.
