All immigrants can obtain temporary residency documents

Santo Domingo.- Immigration Agency director José Ricardo Taveras yesterday said all immigrants living in the country will be issued temporary residency documents until their definitive regularization through the National Plan to Regulate Foreigners.

Taveras said Immigration will not only solve the case of Haitian descendant Juliana Deguis, but all people in those circumstances, as stated in the Constitutional Court ruling on how to grant Dominican nationality.

He said to take advantage of the provision, those affected must request their birth certificate at the Central Electoral Board (JCE).

"It’s a very simple procedure. We’re waiting for Juliana to come to Immigration and obtain her ID. All who are in that situation, who complain, are going to be able to work, study and do all activities of civil life as any citizen because all the rights and duties of any foreign citizen residing legally in a country are being recognized."
