Dominican Republic Unveils “Ambitious and Comprehensive” Citizenship Plan

“The government has set up, in record time, the most ambitious and comprehensive plan in the country’s history in this area,” said Alejandra Liriano, deputy foreign minister of the Dominican Republic.

Liriano said the plan dealt with two main areas: the situation of “irregular foreign migrants,” and nationals who “do not have their papers in order.”

The Dominican Republic said with its immigration plan it could normalize the immigration status of “thousands of people from over 100 nations who are currently illegally in the country” in the next 14 months.

She said the government would also launch an “extensive programme of outreach and advertising” to encourage people to engage with the regularization plan via Caribbean Journal
