Maybe it is different for US,DR dual nationality but it is certainly true for UK.DR nationality. Herewith quote from UK Foreign Office publication.

If you are a dual British national in the country of your other nationality (for example, a dual US-British national in the US), we would not normally offer you support or get involved in dealings between you and the authorities of that state. We may make an exception to this rule if, having looked at the circumstances of the case, we conisder that there is a special humanitarian reason to do so.
Maybe worth checking depending on nationality.
Are you sure it takes one year after your permanent residency card is issued? I thought I read somewhere that after being a permanent resident for three years that you could apply for citizenship? Anyone know the URL on this forum with a thread discussing this?

Please note that the interview is entirely in Spanish.
My bad. It takes atleast three years to get citizenship. 1yr temp residency, 2yr PR after which you can apply for Cuidadana Dominicana.

Thanks.
About citizenship... I have the Permanent Residency (since 2003), have a dominican born kid here but not married to the mother (together with her though, so I guess that could be arranged if necessary). No criminal record here or in my home country. Could I apply for citizenship and if yes give me an idea what I need...

Letter from police department where I live - certified/apostiled.
6 passport photos - 4 front view, 2 side view.
Then I have to go to DR to get application, with my husband, pay fees, take history test [in Spanish].
And then wait......
