This residency classification is designed for those who wish to reside or work in the country for a period of up to one year. After obtaining residency, the foreign national has the option of renewing provisional residency on a yearly basis until the fourth year.
Foreign nationals who wish to remain in the country for an indefinite period of time must apply for Permanent Residency. Foreign nationals who maintain provisional residency status for four consecutive years will qualify to apply for permanent residency on the fifth year.
In 2007 a formal law was created incorporating a new incentive for Investors. This law stipulate that once you already have the RESIDENCY VISA and arrive to DR, you apply directly to PERMANENT RESIDENCY.
The renewal process only requires you make one trip to the Immigration office. We will handle the entire process and call you for a one-time appointment to pick up your residency card. Please contact us for a free quote.
