Dominican Residency & Cedula Renewal

Updated: Sep 5, 2018

   The renewal of your residency card can be started up to 45 days prior to its expiration date. In order to do so the following items will be needed: - Copy of residency card and cedula (front and back) - Copy of picture page of passport - 2x2 frontal digital pictures without glasses or jewelry on white background (ears and forehead should be visible) - Last six month bank statements of your Dominican bank account (only for permanent residents) - Bank reference letter of your Dominican bank account (only for permanent residents) - Property title (if you own property) (only for permanent residents)    Please note that Immigration is requiring those renewing their residency cards to have sufficient funds and movement in their Dominican bank account prior to renewing the cards if you are a permanent resident. Thus it would be good if you can deposit these funds to your Dominican bank account prior to renewing.    With all these documents on hand these can then be submitted to Immigration. The process takes at least 15 to 20 full business days after the file is deposited with Immigration. Thank you,

Maria Abreu
