    Don't be mis-led by the term "Permanent", it's not, it still needs in most cases to be renewed every 2 years.

    Bottom line is now and has always been, it is best to get Citizenship if you plan on living here permanently. This way they can't screw with you anymore.

    The difference is that you are a citizen the same as any Dominican born here. The only thing you cannot do is run for President or VP. You can actually run for any other office.

    There is no renewal or other fees either. Of course you would pay for Passport renewal the same as you would any place else.

    My permanent residency is about to expire and I would like to renew it. Are the requirements still the same? Did anybody renew his residency lately? Would like to go there with everything required "in hand" to avoid unnecessary travel.

    I am in a similar situation. My wife and I are Canadians living for the time being in Canada. We lived in DR from 1995 to 2008 and acquired permanent residency. It is set to expire summer 2012. We will be in DR for 2 months Feb/Mar 2012. We have a home in DR and would not like to lose our residency status, especially as you all know, after the very involved process to get it in the first place. We plan to move back at some point in the future. We still spend at least 2-3 months in DR every year. Any advice for me as to whether to renew now or wait until after elections or otherwise? TIA.

    From a layman's point of view,

    it appears that this new law is designed to prohibit exactly what many people want to do OR are doing - namely, carrying residency without actually residing.

    Unless you reside once every 6 months, you will not be a resident.
    That doesn't seem overly restrictive to me.

    Layman's view, just sayin'.

    I agree, if it means that you can't spend more than 6 months out of the country in any year without prior approval.
