Are you fed up with cold winters, long commutes, and a high cost of living? Whatever your motivation or phase in life, the Dominican Republic is a fantastic place to live! The weather is second to none, the housing is affordable, and the infrastructure and services are high-quality. In fact, the medical care in the DR is so good that many people prefer it to what is available in their home country.
It’s Easy to Move to the Dominican
Relocating to the Dominican is made easy by the government’s interest in attracting more high-end tourism and home ownership. If you are planning to work while you are living in the Dominican Republic you will need a Visa de Negocios or a Visa de Negocios con Fines Laborales depending on the type of work that you are planning to do. It is important to note that all official documents must be translated into Spanish prior to you submitting them. A criminal record certificate will need to be obtained before applying for your visa.
For residents who don’t plan to work, you will still require residency which involves submitting a criminal record certificate along with a few other documents: you will need to be able to show proof of your identity and confirmation of your citizenship for your Visa de Residencia. This visa includes a statement of financial solvency, a medical history statement, and a letter from a national of the Dominican Republic. These documents, along with a letter expressing your interest in obtaining residency are all addressed to the Consular Section. All of these documents, once translated into Spanish, are submitted to the Dominican Republic Embassy or consulate that is located in your home country. The same package of documents must then be resubmitted to the Consulate in Santo Domingo once you arrive in the Dominican Republic.
