Dominican Republic passport

Mark gives us the details on how to get a second passport in the Dominican Republic with his on-the-ground research.

[Editor’s note: This is information has been verified by IM correspondent Mark Svoboda’s on-the-ground research. Like many other countries, the Dominican Republic government may change its citizenship requirements. As always, do your own due diligence.]

The area of residency and citizenship providers in Dominican Republic is very crowded, and prices and levels of services vary significantly. One of the firms that I contacted, Ascot Advisory, has a very good reputation (at least from what I could find). They are actually on the ground and go through the process themselves. The total charge quoted for fast track residency (see option #2 below) is US$22, 300.

Prices at Guzman y Ariza (henceforth, "Guzman") are significantly lower, compared to package providers like Ascot, and based on their reputation, I am as confident as a person can be without actually going through the process that they will get the job done. Please do your own due diligence when choosing a provider, as options are ample.

Guzman has offices in several locations in Dominican Republic, but all the immigration issues go through their main office in Santo Domingo. I personally visited their office in Santo Domingo and saw their signs in other cities.

There are 3 residency/citizenship options with varying requirements.

The shortest path to obtain a Dominican Republic passport and citizenship takes 2 years and costs US$6, 642 in fees plus a US$200, 000 refundable investment (see option #3 below).

(Editors note: The following is from the Guzman y Ariza law firm and Mark's personal research.)

The following is applicable to all types of residencies:

  • Fees are the same for additional applicants as for the primary applicant.
  • Applicant always needs to get a special "residency visa" issued in Dominican consulate of your home country.
  • All fees are payable 70% in advance and the balance upon obtaining the applied-for status.
  • Fees do not include travel or hotel costs in Dominican Republic.

Option #1 Regular Residency to Citizenship Process

  • Approximate cost: $13, 637
  • Time to passport: 8 years
